Peter Brant Jr., the son of the billionaire Peter Brant and ex-supermodel Stephanie Seymour, got arrested Wednesday night for allegedly creating a drunken ruckus and beating up a Port Authority cop at Kennedy Airport.
The 22-year-old sometime model, was waiting in the JetBlue terminal to board a flight for West Palm Beach, Fla., when he became disorderly. A source said Peter was acting “drunk and belligerent,” which allegedly led to a fight with a JetBlue staffer.
Cops were called, but he did not follow their instructions to sit down and lower his voice. He ended up assaulting one of them. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital to be treated for severe intoxication, police said, and will also undergo a psych evaluation.
The billionaire elder Brant was waiting for his son in West Palm Beach Wednesday night. Peter Jr. and his brother Harry were anointed “The New Princes of the City” in a 2012 piece in the New York Times and called “Little Lord Flauntleroys” in a feature piece for Vanity Fair magazine.
Neither of his famous parents have publicly commented on the incident but his own lawyer is apparently less than impressed. Greenwich-based attorney Philip Russell told Page Six,
“He is an idiot.“
Brant Jr. took to Instagram, where he has 58,000+ followers, to make fun of the situation. Underneath a vintage picture of Joan Collins looking chic beside a pile of Louis Vuitton luggage (image since removed from Instagram), Brant wrote:
“Airports are a bitch… #allaboutspacretravel #catchmeifyoucan.“
It has since received nearly 1,000 likes. As one user advised:
“Private jet is the only way to go!“
