Harry Connick Jr.’s Teen Daughter Georgia Arrested
Being a celebrity does not preclude you from being arrested. Being the child of a celebrity does not mean you are above the law. Georgia Connick, daughter of Harry Connick, Jr., found herself in hot water after serving alcohol to underage partygoers over the weekend.
The young Connick was arrested at her family’s New Canaan, Connecticut home. It is alleged that she provided alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21. Connick is facing two charges: procuring alcohol for minors and permitting minors to possess alcohol.
According to reports, law enforcement officials were detailed to the Connick residence at 1 a.m. on Saturday. The local police department was responding to an anonymous tip about underage drinking. Connick was hosting a party attended by a mass of people between the ages of 18 and 20. Empty beer cans were found to be on the property.
The girl’s parents were not present at the time of the party or of their daughter’s arrest. Connick, Jr. issues the following statement: “This is a private matter which we are dealing with as a family. We have no further comments. Thank you for understanding.”
The family has been known to praise the small-town life they lead. Connecticut has been home to the clan for years. Small-town life may have just been turned on its head as the eldest of the family’s three children will soon have her day in court. Whether or not any conviction will have an effect on her status as a student at Vermont Academy remains to be seen.
