Two members of Kennedy clan arrested during wild party


Two members of the illustrious Kennedy clan were arrested in Massachusetts on Sunday during a wild party at a Kennedy family home.

Officers originally responded to a home on Irving Avenue near the family compound in Hyannis Port after neighbors complained about the noise. The two were arrested after an officer asked them to keep it down and they refused, according to The home where the arrests happened is not part of the nearby Kennedy compound.

Barnstable police said 52-year-old Matthew “Max” Kennedy, the ninth child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy, and his daughter, 22-year-old Caroline Rose Kennedy, were taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct and violating the town’s noise law.

According to Barnstable Police Lt. John Murphy, the Kennedys broke a local noise law which is punishable by a $100 fine and arrest.

“It’s if noise is audible for a distance of 150 feet away,” Murphy told the Boston Herald. “It’s a loud party statute, that’s what it’s used for.”

No one else was arrested at the party, according to the Herald. A spokeswoman for the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office said Max Kennedy, 52, was arraigned on Monday on a charge of disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty, and his pretrial hearing is set for Nov. 22. Caroline Kennedy will be arraigned at a later date. Both were released without bail that night.

The 52-year-old is one of Robert F. Kennedy’s 11 children. As an author, he wrote a book titled, “Make Gentle the Life of This: The Vision of Robert F. Kennedy.”
