ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine’s youngest son has been placed on probation and ordered to pay $236 in fines and fees in connection with his arrest following a rally for President Donald Trump in Minnesota.

Linwood “Woody” Kaine, 25, of Minneapolis, was among eight people arrested in the St. Paul rally in March. He pleaded guilty to a charge of obstructing the legal process and received a 90-day sentence, with 86 days suspended. He served four days in jail.

Two other misdemeanor charges were dismissed Dec. 11.

A criminal complaint said Kaine and others changed into black clothing during the rally and entered the Capitol. The complaint said Kaine was among those who ran away and resisted arrest.

Two other men were charged with prohibited use of tear gas. Authorities said a smoke bomb was thrown during the disturbance.

“Some were charged for disruptive activity at the rally but Woody behaved peacefully there and faced no such charges,” said Sarah Peck, a spokeswoman for Tim Kaine.

“Tim and Anne love and support their son and are glad the matter is resolved.”

Tim Kaine was Hillary Clinton’s running mate during the 2016 presidential election.
