RAMSAY CO, MN (CNN) - The son of Hillary Clinton's running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-VA, is facing charges for allegedly disrupting a Trump rally.

Police say Linwood Kaine lit fireworks during the rally inside the Minnesota state capitol in Saint Paul in March. Prosecutors announced on Friday that he's facing obstructing legal process and other charges.

Five other suspects were also charged with misdemeanors, while two more are facing felony counts. Linwood Kaine did not appear on the campaign trail with his father.

The senator said through a spokeswoman that his children, including Linwood, understand the responsibility of expressing their views peacefully.
