Taylor Swift brought some holiday cheer with a big surprise appearance at the home of a 96-year-old World War II vet, and T-Swift superfan.
TAYLOR Swift’s old boyfriend Conor Kennedy, who is also a grandson of Robert Kennedy, has been arrested over an Aspen bar fight, reports say.
According to the New York Post, Kennedy fell foul of the law after fighting outside a nightclub at the ski resort. The fight was allegedly sparked by a homophobic slur.
Kennedy was taken in by police outside the Bootsy Bellows nightclub after the early morning scuffle.
The 22-year-old who dated Swift in 2012, was reportedly charged with disorderly conduct.
The fight broke out when law enforcement responded to a report that club-goers would not leave.
An Aspen police officer saw Kennedy grab another man by his shirt, pull him down so he was bent over and hit him four or five times in the back of the head with his fists, according to Aspen police Sgt. Rick Magnuson.
Officers attempted to break up the fight, but Kennedy continued to try and attack the man, prompting police to try and restrain him, he told the Aspen Times.
“Kennedy and I fell back on to the snow bank on the south side of (Hyman Avenue) where Kennedy attempted to pull away from me and stand up,” arresting officer Andy Atkinson wrote in a report obtained by the Aspen Times. “I held on to Kennedy’s arms and rolled him over with assistance from a bystander on to his stomach.” The bystander then helped Atkinson handcuff Kennedy.
He was charged with disorderly conduct, taken to Pitkin County Jail, and issued with a summons to appear in Aspen Municipal Court.
Kennedy apologised to Atkinson after he was arrested, the report states, but then added of how the fight started, ‘He called my friend the f-word,’” according to the report. Kennedy claimed the man hurled insults at a friend.
Kennedy is the oldest son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and his second wife, the late Mary Richardson, who committed suicide in 2012. He was arrested before in 2013 for a protest outside of the White House.
A family spokesman said , “Multiple witnesses to the incident have reported that two men assaulted Conor Kennedy after he rebuked them for directing a homophobic slur and threats to his close friend. They also report that Mr. Kennedy was cooperative, compliant and respectful towards the police from the moment they arrived on the scene. Mr. Kennedy looks forward to a full airing of the incident.”
