The 22-year-old was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct early Thursday morning
Conor Kennedy, the 22-year-old ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift, was arrested Thursday in Aspen, Colorado, after he was allegedly involved in a fight outside a nightclub, PEOPLE confirms.
The grandson of Robert F. Kennedy was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct early Thursday morning after he was in a fight with another man, Aspen police said in a news release.
Kennedy is the son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and environmental activist and Mary Kathleen Richardson, who died in 2012 after killing herself at 52.
The Kennedy family member allegedly fought another man in the street about 1:40 a.m., Aspen police said.
Officers reported seeing Kennedy allegedly punch the man in the head about four or five times before struggling against an officer who tried to restrain him, according to the news release.
PEOPLE confirms Kennedy was booked on a municipal disorderly conduct charge, reportedly a misdemeanor-level offense, and was later released from jail after being issued a court summons.
Kennedy has a court appearance set for Feb. 22. He has not entered a plea, and his attorneys could not immediately be reached.
