Kaine and other counterprotesters showed up at a pro-Trump rally in March at the Minnesota state capitol in Saint Paul. Kaine's father was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in the 2016 election. 

Counterprotesters used smoke bombs, mace and fireworks during the rally, the local attorney general said.

According to The Richmond Times-Dispatch's report, a smoke bomb was set off inside the capitol and several protesters were arrested. 

Kaine was charged in May with a misdemeanor for fleeing on foot, concealing identity in a public place and obstructing the legal process. A document reviewed by CNN indicated Kaine fled from a police officer and that it took several officers to detain him.

Two of the misdemeanor charges were dismissed earlier this month, and Kaine pleaded guilty to the obstruction charge, according to The Richmond Times-Dispatch.
