Vice President of the United States Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was kicked of the U.S. Navy earlier this year for testing positive for cocaine, according to reports.
The 44-year-old former public-affairs ensign tested positive for cocaine in a 2013 drug test and was dismissed from the Naval Reserves in February.
His dismissal wasn't publicized, according to the Nav, "because he was treated like any other sailor who fails a drug test and is thrown out of the Navy."
The official noted that such cases are typically not reported due to the Privacy Act.
Hunter, who joined the Navy Reserves back in 2012, issued a statement Thursday, saying, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy."
"I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my discharge. I respect the Navy's decision. With the love and support of my family, I'm moving forward."
When Hunter joined the Navy in 2012, he had to get a waiver because of his age.
