POTUS Bush Nephew Arrested On Public Intoxication

Posted by Frankie at 9/17/2005 02:52:00 AM

The nephew of POTUS Bush, Ellis Bush, or son of Florida Gov. Job Bush, was arrested by the good old Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission at 2:30 a.m. Friday on a corner of Austin's Sixth Street bar district. Bush was arrested for public intoxication and resisting arrest.

GOF Jeb Bush said that it was not an appropriate time to discuss specifics of the incident.
"My son's doing fine. It's a private matter. We will support him. We're sad for him. But I'm not going to discuss it on the public square with 30 cameras."
Capt. David Ferrero of the Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission told Miami television station WSVN that the younger Bush,
"received a small cut on his chin when he was resisting and he was treated and released from the hospital."
A staffer answering phones at the commission's offices later Friday evening said he had no information about John Ellis Bush being injured during the incident.

It's not the first time Florida's first family has experienced legal problems with one of their children.

Noelle Bush, the governor's daughter, was arrested in January 2002 and was accused of trying to pass a fraudulent prescription at a Tallahassee pharmacy to obtain the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. She completed a drug rehabilitation program in August 2003 and a judge dismissed the drug charges against her.

Noelle Bush was sent to jail twice for violating rules during her rehab stint. She was jailed for three days in July 2002 after being caught with prescription pills and served 10 days a month later after being accused of having a small rock of crack cocaine in her shoe.

The Smoking Gun has the police report:
Subject arrested for public intoxication, upon arrest, subject pulled away and became resistant. Subject continually pushed away against this officer and struggled as he attempted to handcuff him. Subject further resisted by pushing back with his body as he was restrained at the APD transport van.

I posted this story on my blog too. I thought it was funny. Mostly I think it is funny that some cop was brave enough to arrest the governors son because this probably isn't the first time it has happened and most cops would let him go once they found out who he is.

I know, I am sure many times before the guy (opps, I mean) kid probably used "Do you know who I am?" "I will have your ass fired..." something like that. I am sure he was spouting that off while he was resisting. I can assume he did not have a fun college (Thursday) night lol.
