Burlington police are confirming that former Governor Howard Dean’s son has been ordered to appear in court to face a charge of accessory to burglary. Police apprehended Paul Dean and four other Burlington teenagers early Monday. Police say they were burglarizing the Burlington Country Club and trying to steal liquor.
Police say Paul Dean was the driver, and waited outside while the other four went into a storage area where the country club kept liquor. Howard Dean – who is a Democratic presidential candidate – is curtailing his campaign appearances for Friday and Saturday to return home to deal with the situation. Dean says all five of the youths are members of the hockey team at Burlington High School.
