A Kennedy in handcuffs? Make it two. Father and daughter arrested for wild party

It’s been a while since a Kennedy has been in handcuffs, but like a solar eclipse, if you wait long enough, it’s sure to happen.

Matthew “Max” Kennedy, the ninth son of Robert F. Kennedy, was arrested in the wee hours Sunday morning near the family compound in Hyannis Port, the New York Post reported.

Kennedy, 52, didn’t go down alone, though. He was joined by his 22-year-old daughter, Caroline, who was also cuffed.

Their crime? The Kennedy’s broke a local noise law.

Turns out, the father-daughter duo were upholding a longstanding Kennedy tradition of partying hard, as a “raucous” party was reportedly going down over the weekend, to include fireworks, according to The Post.

After several complaints, police eventually showed up and asked them to turn down the loud music. The Kennedys responded by telling the officers to go pound sand and were taken into custody for disorderly conduct.

A Kennedy? No way!

Barnstable Police Lt. John Murphy told The Boston Herald that the noise ordinance is punishable by a $100 fine AND arrest.

“It’s if noise is audible for a distance of 150 feet away,” Murphy said. “It’s a loud party statute, that’s what it’s used for.”

The alleged “crime” seems minor to result in an arrest, which may indicate a history of disturbances.

Or, as one social media user opined, the police just “didn’t know who he was.”

Leave it to outspoken conservative actor James Woods to accentuate the positive: “No dead girls at least. That’s an improvement.”
