Miami-Dade Commissioner Carlos Gimenez's troubled kid, Julio Francisco Gimenez, was arrested after a bar brawl this past Saturday. Actually, he's not even a kid -- he's a 31-year-old man.
Gimenez was at the Sports Exchange, a bar in Coral Gables, watching college football when he got into a heated argument with two other patrons. He allegedly head-butted the guy (!!) and threw a glass of beer at him (!!!). He then grabbed a guy by the neck (!!!!).
Gimenez was apparently hit in the head by a beer bottle.

This isn't the first time the younger Gimenez has been in trouble. He was arrested on a number of charges in 2006, some of them drug related, but surprise, surprise, the Commish's kids charges were dropped.
At this rate, knowing this town, he'll follow his Old Man's footsteps to the dias in no time.
