COLUMBIA, Mo. | The brother of U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill faces a felony drug charge stemming from a January incident near a Columbia nightclub he co-owns.
Court documents show 46-year-old Will McCaskill was found unconscious Jan. 5 outside a restaurant near Generic, his nightclub. He was taken to a hospital with a cut above his eye and a large bruise. Police said they found a paper with a substance that later tested positive for cocaine.
McCaskill was charged in August with drug possession. He was arrested Wednesday night in his hometown of Holts Summit and released on $4,500 bond.
Sen. McCaskill said Thursday she's disappointed and the law should treat her brother no differently than anyone else. The Democratic lawmaker is a former county prosecutor.
Will McCaskill did not immediately respond to messages left at his business.
