Caroline Biden, Joe Biden’s Niece, In Court After Alleged Attack

NEW YORK, Oct. 30 (UPI) — Caroline Biden, niece of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, appeared in a New York court on charges of striking a police officer, court documents said.

Biden, 26, “sported a black eye and a bad attitude,” the New York Daily News reported, as she was charged in Manhattan Criminal Court Tuesday with misdemeanor obstruction of government administration, resisting arrest and harassment with physical contact.

Biden allegedly struck a police officer attempting to break up a fight between herself and her roommate on Sept. 17 at their apartment in the Tribeca section of Manhattan.

She allegedly continued struggling when she arrived at the precinct station house, with officers attempting to put her in a cell forced to pry her hands from the cell bars, the newspaper said.

Biden said nothing during her hearing Tuesday, and was ordered to return to court Dec. 17 if the charges are not resolved prior to that date.
