JOHN EDWARDS' former aide who once claimed paternity of his love child, ANDREW YOUNG, busted by cops!
Young was arrested in Raleigh, N.C. late Sunday in connection with DWI and misdemeanor child abuse, as he had a child in his vehicle at the time he was stopped.
Police said the 48-year-old Young claimed he was coming home from Walnut Creek Amphitheater, the site of a concert where he consumed four beers.
Young was “involved in a road rage incident where he punched a vehicle,” authorities said.
At the time he was apprehended, Young’s eyes were red and glassy, and he was slurring his word, cop say. The ex-politico declined to take a field sobriety test.
The former Edwards aide was released early Monday after he posted $2,000 bond, officials said.
As The ENQUIRER previously reported Young was also arrested in connection with DWI in 2006.
Young — who infamous claimed HE fathered Rielle Hunters love child with Edwards — eventually turned on the two time presidential loser, penning a 2010 tell-all and testifying against him.
Young and his wife lost a civil lawsuit with Hunter over ownership of the notorious Edwards-Hunter sex tape that Young claimed he had found in the trash. They lost the case.
