Conor Kennedy, 22, was busted by the Aspen Police Department for disorderly conduct and has exclusively learned about his lenient treatment by the cops.

Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend, the son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., was taken to the Pitkin County Jail early Thursday morning after a brawl about 1:40am at local hot spot Bootsy Bellows.

“Officer Andrew Atkinson and a man later identified as John Conor Kennedy fell into a snowbank as Atkinson tried to break up the fight,” the Aspen PD told

The situation escalated when officers witnessed Kennedy “throwing approximately four or five punches to the head,” of another man.

He was charged with disorderly conduct, but did his infamous family name have anything to do with the ease with which he was let go?

Aspen Detective Jeff Fain told “Often with municipal court, when we believe the person is going to show up, we release them.

“Kennedy was released with no bond. He was booked, fingerprinted and had his mugshot taken and was served with a summons, which is promise to appear in court. This is standard practice with our municipal court. There was no bond process. We feel like he will return.

Kennedy must return to Aspen for a court date on February 22, 2017.
