He was reportedly defending someone else's honor.

He might be the Taylor Swift ex-boyfriend who never thought she was funny (opens in new tab), but the story about his recent arrest in Aspen sure is is sort of amusing.

According to E! News (opens in new tab), the 22-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct related to a fight after officers were dispatched to the nightclub Bootsy Bellows, where they observed Kennedy punch another man as they "roll[ed] around on the ground." Then he fell into a snowbank.

Local reports say (opens in new tab) he apologized to the arresting officer, explaining that "'He called my friend the f-word.'"
