The youngest son of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., was sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to pay $236 in fines and fees for resisting arrest after he and others disrupted a Minnesota rally in support of President Donald Trump.
About 400 people attended the Trump rally March 4 at the Minnesota state Capitol in St. Paul, and about 75 to 125 counterprotesters arrived, according to criminal complaints.
Fireworks and smoke bombs were set off inside the capitol and several people were arrested. Minnesota state officers had to call for backup from St. Paul police.
Linwood Michael “Woody” Kaine, 25, of Minneapolis, was arrested outside the capitol and later charged with three misdemeanors.
Two of them — concealing identity and fleeing a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle — were dismissed Dec. 11, according to online court records for Ramsey County, Minn. Kaine pleaded guilty to obstructing legal process/interfering with a peace officer.
