Guess it sucks to be the governor's son! He must have missed the meeting about keeping a low profile...Eh?! Should have kept to sparkling water, ooh wait, that will get you arrested too. Should'a stayed at the mansion, ooh, but wait, no chef on staff.... Life can sure be tough, can't it?

Not the first time for a Governor's child...Kudos to the fact that McDonald is allowing the legal system to take its course.

The gift that keeps on giving. I wonder if he was intoxicated on that state food and beverage that his dad lent him from the Governor's mansion?

This isn't news, and it doesn't reflect on the Governor.

How do you know that? We'll see if he gets the same penalties as my son did.

Preacher's kid, Governor's kid, they are all so sick of being good, when they get to college, all the inhibitions go. Welcome, Bob, to parenting college kids.

You are right about that, and I'm not a McDonald fan. Also...giving some food to his kids going back to college is fine with me, even if it IS my dime. Don't sweat the small stuff.

The Dude regresses once again. This reflects 100% on the Gov.; who raised this kid?

It absolutely is news, but you're right, it doesn't reflect (much) on the governor.

Good grief McDonnell enough already. Time to resign, focus on your family instead of probing into women's issues and stealing from the mansion!

A punk faces public swearing and intoxication charges but was released on his own recognizance.
How come another UVA student spends the night in jail over bottled water?

How sweet it is...When you do what McDonnell & the Cooch have done to women's rights, it will only get worse for those two. Time to resign and focus on your family Governor. P.S. stop stealing from the tax payers

"Dude", trying to use the jedi mind trick on everyone? This is news (just as when Howie Long's son got into trouble) but agree that it doesn't reflect on the Governor. Kids grow up and have to make mistakes. He just happens to be the Governor's son.

I have to laugh at the double standard ~ giving the Gov the benefit of the doubt and excusing all behavior. If this were Obama (or Michelle and their daughters)~ watch out world!! No excuses and total condemnation. Or for that matter, any democrat! I'm an Independent, by the way! Just very observant of partisan behavior.

Why is this news? Is it because he's the governor's kid? No, I bet 10 kids his age get arrested a week. Really, a 22 year old getting belligerent? I'm shocked I tell you. What would be news if McDonnell used his position to interfere.

If it were McDonnell or Obama or either of their wives, it most certainly would be news. Obama's 22 year old daughter, not so much.(when she gets there.)

That's how it goes. If this had been Obama, "not a libtard", "harry", and "huckleberry" would have written a novel in posts by now.

Why is Cynthia Neff DUI news? I bet lots of DUI's occur monthly - works both ways sparky
