According to The Aspen Times, Conor apologized after the incident. He then reportedly told police that the man he was fighting used a derogatory word against his friend.

Robert Kennedy Jr. defended his son’s actions. “Conor has always reacted against bullying. I’m happy he stood up for his friend,” he said in a statement to The Aspen Times. “I’m very sorry it turned into a police incident. [Conor’s] not liking the attention.”

He added that the Aspen Police “have been extraordinary” to his family in the past, especially when his brother, Michael Kennedy, died from a skiing accident on Aspen Mountain in 1997.
