It's a Family Affair

President's nephew arrested on Sixth Street

The youngest son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was arrested in downtown Austin early today on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest, officials said.

John Ellis Bush, 21, was taken into custody around 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of Trinity and Sixth streets near the downtown entertainment district. He was released around 10:30 a.m. today on a personal recognizance bond. Bail had been set at $2,500.

An affidavit on the public intoxication charge was not immediately available; according to an affidavit for the resisting arrest charge, Bush continually pushed against an officer for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission as the officer attempted to handcuff him.

"Subject further resisted by pushing back with his body as he was restrained at the (Austin Police Department) transport van," the document said.

Bush is the nephew of President George W. Bush.

TABC Capt. David Ferrero said Bush approached a group of TABC and Austin police officers and asked about an earlier arrest of people he knew and was observed to be intoxicated. Agents did not know his identity until after they had arrested him and looked at his driver's license, which was issued from Florida.

He would not be more specific about how Bush was behaving.

Ferrero said while Bush was being arrested, he suffered a cut on his chin and was taken to Brackenridge Hospital, treated and released. He was then taken to the Travis County Jail.

"He was observed to be a danger to himself and others," Ferrero said..."

Jeb must be quite the dad. His daughter is a drug addict and his son is a drunk.
Family values, my ass.
These people are just plain genetically defective.

...or intellectually limited.

But I bet they stock a helluva bar. said...

so, it's an altruism that the most self-righteous have more skeletons?

Air America yesterday ran an interview (i don't really remember who it was with) on Rove's not so honest dealings, which among the obvious slanderous activites also include voting in elections in a state (Texas) in which he doesn't live (also Texas.) I didn't catch the whole tihng, but what i did hear didn't make me any happier.

Anyone else catch this, or at least have some knowledge of what I'm talking about than I do? I make a big enough ass of myself as it is...I'd at least like to get ONE story straight before I start ranting about it. (chuckle)

Karen Zipdrive said...

I read that about Rove's voting. His
so-called residence in Texas is like a huntin' shack in the middle of Nowheresville, TX.
No one has ever seen him at the general store or anywhere around his alleged Texas home.
It's said to be uninhabitable.

As for Jeb Bush, he said of his son's booze bust, "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," the governor told reporters."

Here's a clue, Jeb. You having two kids getting busted for drugs and booze shows you can't run a fuckin' family, much less a state.
How those kids must loathe you to call such negative attention to themselves and embarrass you and your dopey brother so publicly.
Too bad your kids weren't reared like Chelsea Clinton. She has no police record and no known substance abuse problems, but she does have an advanced degree and a brilliant career ahead of her.
The rotten apples don't fall far from the crab-apple bush in your drunken clan, Bub.
Bush bad genetics are so apparent.
Tough break, prick. Better go make yourself a stiff drink and do a few lines of coke. It'll take the edge off. said...

once again...Rhoad's Scholar vs. Gentleman's 'C'.

and they try to make us believe that the well-heeled are so much better than the common folk. they just have the money to be able to buy their way out of embarrassing situations. Had it been the offspring of say...someone a bit more liberal...the whole story would be completely blown out of proportion by Lumbug and the rest of his gasbag ilk...

Karen Zipdrive said...

It all starts with that old battle-ax Barbara Bush.
If she didn't come from money, no way would that namby-pamby George H.W. Bush have given her a second glance.
But no, he marries her, then has the stomach to breed with her.
You can't tell me anyone could screw her without being drunker than Cooter Brown. said...

I was wondering a while back which of the Bush Girls were going to be the first to do a spread in Hustler...I'm sure they haven't all-of-a-sudden turned into goody goodies...they have long been known for their propensity for spreading their goody goodies around like skippy peanut butter...

Don't forget about Prescott about money money money...I have it on some authority that he was one of the Good Patriotic Americans who were partly responsible for financing Hitler's rise to power and war machine back in the 30's.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Prescott Bush was a slimy crook who poured money into Hitler's reign of terror.
He made a bootlegger like Joseph Kennedy look like a real straight arrow.
There are no good Bushes.
Even the now grown "little brown one," Jeb's eldest son, George Prescott Bush, is suspect.
His siblings are raging substance abusers- you think he escaped the family curse?
I somehow doubt it.
