The 22-year-old granddaughter of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy was arrested Saturday, Aug. 19, after a house party at her father’s Cape Cod rental home ended in a “drunken riot.”
Caroline Kennedy, a Palisadian resident and Brown University alumna, and her father, Max Kennedy, were hosting a party across the street from the family’s famed Hyannis Port compound where, local reports said, disorderly guests were playing loud music and lighting off fireworks.
Police arrived at the rental home around 1 a.m. after neighbors filed noise complaints.
After police requested that he calm the loud partygoers, Max allegedly began screaming incoherently and smashed a wall cabinet filled with glassware.
Police detained the 52-year-old man, arresting him on charges of disorderly conduct.
Police said that Caroline attempted to rescue her father from the squad car while partygoers “rushed in” at the police.
Caroline was allegedly heard yelling “I went to Brown and I’m a teacher, sweetheart,” and telling the arresting officer to “f— off.”
Caroline and her father were both held overnight before posting bail.
Max was arraigned on Monday, Aug. 21, in Barnstable District Court. He pleaded not guilty.
According to Vanity Fair, Caroline will be arraigned on Nov. 22, the 54th anniversary of her great-uncle President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
