The niece of Vice President Joe Biden was arrested in New York City on Tuesday.
The NYPD says that officers took Caroline Biden into custody after responding to a report of a dispute at her Tribeca apartment.
Police said the 26-year-old scuffled with officers as they tried to break up a fight between her and her roommate.
Biden was later charged with obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and harassment. It was unclear if she was still in custody Tuesday afternoon.
The vice president's office declined to comment.
Caroline Biden is the daughter of the vice president’s brother, James Biden Sr.
Biden has been in the news before.
In 2009, Amtrak spokeswoman Karina Romero said Amtrak police briefly detained her. Romero says Caroline Biden was questioned because of a "misunderstanding over a train fare." Romero declined to be specific, but said Biden wasn't arrested or charged in that incident.

Biden’s niece busted after roommate dispute

Caroline Biden, covered, in a chair, at the police precinct.Joe Biden’s art-dealer niece went on a violent rampage at her luxury Tribeca apartment Tuesday — throwing punches at police officers and flailing “frantically” as cops wrestled her into handcuffs, sources said.
Caroline Biden, 26, went wild at about 9:15 a.m., “screaming at the top of her lungs” after her roommate confronted her about unpaid rent at their $3,500-a-month digs, sources said.
Cops soon arrived at Biden’s posh Desbrosses Street building — called the Truffles Tribeca — to investigate the situation. As a female officer filled out a report, the vice president’s niece demanded to see what she was writing, sources said.
“She said, ‘I want to see that,’” a witness said. “And when the officer didn’t show her the report, she lunged at her.”
Biden threw one punch at the female officer, and missed. A male officer intervened, and the pol’s niece started striking him with numerous small, slap-like hits on his arm and chest, sources said.
As the cops subdued her, she “flailed her arms frantically” to resist being handcuffed, cops said.
She was finally taken to the First Precinct station house, where she resisted going into a holding cell “by grabbing a police officer’s arm,” cops said.
Although Biden was described by a source as “highly uncooperative,” she was released with a desk- appearance ticket after being charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of government administration and harassment.
She then complained of difficulty breathing, and created another bizarre scene when she was taken out of the precinct by paramedics strapped to a rolling chair and covered nearly head to toe with a towel for an ambulance ride to Beth Israel Medical Center.
Biden, who works at the Higher Pictures gallery on the Upper East Side, was behind on her rent by several months, said Anne Marie Yacopetti, who sublet the apartment to her and another woman.
Biden’s father, James Biden Sr., is the financier brother of the vice president. He paid the security deposit in August 2013, when she moved into the luxury building.
Yacopetti’s mother, Marjie, claimed Caroline Biden said she would pay the outstanding rent “when she feels like it.”
“It’s unfortunate that she had to pay Caroline’s rent,” Marjie Yacopetti griped. “We’re just little white-collar people here,” she said, adding that her daughter moved back to California to save money. “If you’re an elitist Biden, I guess you think you’re owed the world.”
Caroline Biden’s other brush with the law, came in 2009, when she was briefly detained by Amtrak police, following a dispute over a train fare.
The vice president’s staff did not return a call or e-mail for comment.

I will give Joe credit for one thing, which is that he hasn't come out and said that the cops "behaved stupidly" or otherwise insulted them. No beer summit this time around.
Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.
