You may recognize Conor Kennedy as the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and great nephew of JFK. He also dated Taylor Swift for a minute—we’ll let you decide which is more relevant.

The young Kennedy was recently arrested for defending a gay friend in a bar fight. He was charged with disorderly conduct when a fight broke out after someone refused to apologize for using a homophobic slur at his friend. Police were called to the Bootsy Bellows nightclub in Aspen where the altercation took place.

Conor’s father, Robert Kennedy Jr told the Aspen Times:

“Conor has always reacted against bullying. I’m happy he stood up for his friend. I’m very sorry it turned into a police incident. Conor is not liking the attention.”
