Andrew Young, ex-presidential candidate John Edwards’ former right-hand man, was arrested in Raleigh, North Carolina late Sunday in connection with DWI and misdemeanor child abuse, as he had a child in his vehicle at the time he was stopped.
Police said the 48-year-old Young claimed he was coming home from Walnut Creek Amphitheater, the site of a concert where he consumed four beers. Young was “involved in a road rage incident where he punched a vehicle,” authorities said.
At the time he was apprehended, Young’s eyes were red and glassy, and he was slurring when he spoke, police said. The politico declined to take a field sobriety test.
Young was also arrested in connection with DWI in 2006. Young — who infamous claimed HE fathered Rielle Hunter’s love child with Edwards — eventually turned on the one-time presidential candidate, penning a 2010 tell-all and testifying against him.
