Linwood Kaine, the youngest son of Hillary Clinton's running mate Tim has been arrested on suspicion of a felony charge of riot after allegedly disrupting a pro-Donald Trump rally in Minnesota.

Linwood Michael Kaine was arrested Saturday, according to St. Paul Police public information officer Steve Linders.

A sixth person was cited for disorderly conduct, according to the Pioneer Press. "They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully".

The rally at the State Capitol was one of several demonstrations held around the country over the weekend in support of Trump.

One 61-year-old Trump supporter said she was hit in the head by remnants of the smoke bomb.

Then security personnel attempted to intervene, fighting broke out.

After the counter-demonstrators dispersed the Trump rally resumed. He said police tracked Kaine and the group down and arresting officers had to use "some force" to take him into custody.

St. Paul police arrested Kaine and the four others near Rice Street and University Avenue, less than a block from the Capitol. No one from the senator's office contacted the department about it, they said.

Kaine, who lives in Minneapolis, was released Tuesday morning and no charges were filed against him although St. Paul City Attorney Samuel Clark is looking at the case for possible misdemeanor charges.
