” A niece of Vice President Joe Biden, Caroline Biden, 26, was taken into police custody Tuesday morning in Manhattan after tussling with cops sent to break up a fight with her roommate over rent money, police told the Daily News. Biden was hospitalized after apparently falling ill at the 1st Precinct stationhouse.
Biden refused to respond to questions from reporters as paramedics put her in the back of an ambulance and drove her to Beth Israel Hospital.
Asked what was ailing Biden, a police source bristled, “What’s she not complaining about?
“The female officer started to fill out paperwork, and Biden objected to it and lunged at the female officer,” the source said. “She kinda swung at the officer. The male officer intervened and Biden became uncooperative and aggressive.”
The source said the 5-foot-4, 115-pound Biden punched the male officer in the arm and chest and put up a struggle as she was being cuffed.
Once at the 1st Precinct stationhouse, she continued to struggle with cops, clinging to the bars of a jail cell as cops tried to shoehorn her inside, a source said. Her hands had to be pried off the bars to get her in the cell, the source said.”
