The 26-year-old son of Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall was arrested Wednesday on charges including heroin possession, according to local news reports.
"Maggie and I are deeply distressed to learn of our son's arrest. We love our son and stand with him in his commitment to getting the treatment he needs," Udall said in a statement. "We appreciate the private space to deal with this as a family."
The Daily Camera reported that Jedediah Lee Fox-Udall, who goes by Jed, was arrested in Boulder County, Colo., after sheriff's deputies encountered him after allegedly trying to break in to three vehicles. The sheriff told the newspaper that the deputies found the heroin in one of the younger Udall's pockets.
Jed Udall was booked at the Boulder County Jail before being released. According to the jail's records, he was charged with three counts of first-degree trespassing, as well as one count of possession of a controlled substance.
