ASPEN, COLORADO – According to numerous online sources, 22-year-old John Conor Kennedy was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct yesterday morning.
“Police say Kennedy and another man were fighting in the street and rolling around on the ground when officers tried to separate them. Officers reported seeing Kennedy punch the man in the head four or five times,” according to CBS News.
The CBS report goes on to state Kennedy’s attorneys contend the fight started after Conor Kennedy responded to a “homophobic slur and threats” directed at one of his friends…
The fight reportedly occurred at about 1:30AM outside a nightclub called “Bootsy Bellows.” According to their Facebook page, Bootsy Bellows describes itself as a “Speak-easy style lounge…”
The CBS report continues, “Kennedy allegedly struggled against an officer who was trying to restrain him before they both fell into a snowbank.”
“Kennedy “was arrested with the help of a bystander,” according to Aspen police Sgt. Rick Magnuson,” CBS Denver reports.
However… “Kennedy’s attorneys said in a statement that he was ‘cooperative, compliant and respectful,’” according to CBS.
Kennedy was in a relationship with Taylor Swift in 2012. The two spent time in Hyannis Port during their brief relationship.
