On Wednesday, it has been confirmed by E! News that Conor Kennedy has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor that derived from a bar fight that occurred in Aspen, Colorado this past December.
John Conor Kennedy is not only the ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift but also happens to be the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy.
Now who would’ve guessed that John Conor Kennedy, who prefers to just be called Conor, would be such a bad boy?
Authorities told E! News that the 22-year-old was arrested on disorderly conduct charges.
In a press release, Aspen Assistant Chief Bill Linn stated, “At about 1:40 a.m. Aspen PD officers were dispatched to Bootsy Bellows…for a report of a person who was refusing to leave the premises. While officers were on scene dealing with that situation, they witnessed a fight occurring on the street in front of the bar. Officers tried to separate the two men, who were ‘rolling around on the ground.'”
The press release also stated that Conor apparently “fell into a snowbank” when the officer tried to break the fight up. The officer on site had difficulty restraining Conor so a bystander stepped in to assist.
Witnesses came forward to describe “Kennedy throwing approximately four or five punches to the head of the other party. Kennedy was charged with disorderly conduct and was issued a court summons for Feb. 22, 2017, at 9 a.m. He was released without bond.”
According to local reports, the police report states that Kennedy did apologize to the officer after he was arrested.
The charge carries a possible penalty of up to a year in jail and up to $2,650 fine.
E! News obtained a statement from Kennedy’s attorneys, Matt Ferguson and Ryan Kalamaya on Friday are stating, “Multiple witnesses to the incident have reported that two men assaulted Conor Kennedy after he rebuked them for directing a homophobic slur and threats to his close friend. They also report that Mr. Kennedy was cooperative, compliant and respectful towards the police from the moment they arrived on the scene. Mr. Kennedy looks forward to a full airing of the incident.”
