Former aide to John Edwards arrested, charged with DWI

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - Andrew Young, the former aide to then-presidential candidate John Edwards and author of a tell-all book about the campaign, was arrested in Raleigh this weekend.

Andrew Young was charged with DWI and misdemeanor child abuse.
     
Young was stopped near Walnut Creek Amphitheater and told police he was coming home from a concert.
     
The police report says officers were alerted to his condition after he was involved in a road rage incident, where he punched a vehicle.
     
Young had a child in his car when he was arrested.

Young was a key witness for the prosecution in Edwards' federal trial on charges he accepted illegal campaign contributions and used them to cover up an affair and the child that resulted.
     
He posted bond early Monday morning.
