Police in Asheville have arrested the son of actor Bill Pullman on charges of assaulting an officer and moonshine possession.

Both were arrested Monday night and charged with underage possession of alcohol and possession of non-tax paid liquor, or moonshine. Pullman also was charged with resisting officers and assault on law enforcement.
Pullman and Gaddy are students at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, which is 11 miles east of Asheville. Both were released Tuesday from the Buncombe County Detention Center.
A school spokesman said Pullman is a freshman.
