Jeb Bush's Son Arrested for Public Drunkeness

The Smoking Gun

SEPTEMBER 16--One of President George W. Bush's nephews--the youngest son of Florida Governor Jeb Bush--was arrested early today and charged with public drunkenness and resisting arrest. John Ellis Bush, 21, was nabbed at 2:30 AM by Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agents in Austin (Jeb Jr.'s street corner arrest came in one of the capitol's popular bar districts).

According to the above arrest warrant, filed with the Travis County Municipal Court, an intoxicated Bush, "continually pushed against this officer and struggled as I attempted to handcuff him."

After about four hours in custody, Bush was released on $2500 bond for the resisting count (the intox charge was covered by a personal recognizance bond). This is the second time young Jeb has landed on a police blotter. In October 2000, Jeb, then 16, and a girlfriend were discovered naked from the waist down in a Jeep Cherokee parked at a Tallahassee mall. Jebby's siblings, George and Noelle, have also had well-publicized run-ins with the fuzz.


  • I'm absolutely against Bush (Jeb & george), but does this thing really matters? As if Jeb or George Bush get even worse because John Ellis drank some alcohol...

  • Yes it matters.

    Politicians apply different sets of rules to their kids than they do to everyone elses. Every time their kids get in trouble it is referred to as "a private family matter" (and it most certianly should be) but when it is you or your kids your names are dragged through the newspaper and it is anything but a private matter.

    When they begin to treat the rest of the American people with dignity when it comes to substance use or abuse then it will not be news when they are caught doing the same kinds of things that we mere peasants do.

    Until then they are fair game!
