The Bidens Have a Long History of Arrests — and of Getting Out of Jail Free

Written by  

It’s good to be a Biden.

The Biden family has a long history of runs-ins with the law, from drug possession to drunk driving to theft, yet none of those involved have ever done jail time, according to a review of public records by the New York Post.

The former vice president’s brother, Frank Biden, was caught driving under the influence in Fort Lauderdale in 2003, but got off with six months of probation.

That same year, Frank was busted trying to steal two DVDs — hidden in his pants — from a Florida Blockbuster store. The Miami New Times reports that he simply never showed up for his court hearing and the state attorney declined to prosecute.

Just a year later, Frank Biden was arrested for driving with a suspended license, but avoided jail again by doing three months of rehab.


A few years earlier, in 1999, he was a passenger in a car involved in a fatal drunk-driving accident. The court held him partially liable for the death of 38-year-old William Albano. According to the Daily Mail, the Biden brother owes Albano’s family nearly $1 million.

Frank Biden, now 66 years old, currently works as a senior advisor to the Berman Law Group. The New American has previously reported on how Frank Biden benefited greatly in his business dealings from tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded foreign aid under the Obama administration.

In his book Profiles in Corruption, Peter Schweizer (who also wrote Clinton Cash) wrote:

Just months after Vice President [Joe] Biden’s visit, in August, Costa Rica News announced a new multilateral partnership ‘to reform Real Estate in Latin America’ between Frank Biden, a developer named Craig Williamson, and the Guanacaste Country Club, a newly planned resort. …

In real terms, Frank’s dream was to build in the jungles of Costa Rica thousands of homes, a world-class golf course, casinos, and an anti-aging center. The Costa Rican government was eager to cooperate with the vice president’s brother.

Frank Biden’s projects also received over $54 million in American taxpayer-funded loans for projects in the Caribbean.

But the Bidens’ story doesn’t end there.

Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, was busted with marijuana while a student at Tulane University in 1999. New Orleans police confirmed the arrest, but no conviction was found in court records.

Ten years later, while her father was vice president, a video circulated that showed a woman resembling Ashley snorting cocaine at a party. There were no legal consequences.

Ashley was again arrested in 2002 for allegedly making “intimidating statements” and attempting to obstruct a police officer after a fight involving bottle-throwing at a bar in Chicago. The charges against her were dropped.

Caroline Biden, the daughter of Joe’s younger brother, James, was arrested in 2017 for allegedly hitting an NYPD officer during a meltdown at her home over an incident involving a roommate and unpaid rent. After Caroline agreed to go to anger management sessions, the case was dismissed.

In 2017, Caroline again found herself on the wrong side of the law for spending over $110,000 on a stolen credit card. Her attorneys negotiated a deal in which she was allowed to replead to a lesser charge of petty larceny. Caroline’s felony conviction was tossed, and she again avoided jail time.

Then, in 2019, the former vice president’s niece was caught driving under the influence and without a license. The case is still active, though thus far she has yet to receive any consequences.

And of course, there’s Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.

Hunter Biden’s long history of drug abuse started with a 1988 drug possession arrest.

“I was cited for possession of a controlled substance in Stone Harbor, NJ. There was a pre-trial intervention and the record was expunged,” he admitted after being nominated to serve on the Amtrak Reform Board.

Hunter has been in rehab at least six times for drugs and alcohol and confessed to being addicted to crack for four years. In 2013, he was discharged from the Navy after just one month of service after testing positive for cocaine.

Hunter Biden has also been a source of controversy for his time on the board of the Ukrainian firm Burisma, during which he was paid $50,000 a month. This was while his father was vice president. During that time, Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees from Ukraine if its government did not fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma.

Despite the repeated drug abuse and other questionable behavior, Hunter Biden has never spent a day in a jail cell.
