Congressman Boyd's son arrested for human trafficking

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The son of U.S. Rep. Allen Boyd is facing alien smuggling charges in Arizona.

The Democratic congressman, who is seeking a seventh term this November, said Tuesday that his 30-year-old son, John Boyd, was
arrested Sunday on the human trafficking charges.

In a statement from his office, Congressman Boyd said his son is
a grown man and must face the consequences for his actions but has
the support of the family.

Boyd is being challenged by Panama City Republican Mark Mulligan in the Nov. 4 general election.
