    In this Sept. 20, 2016, file photo, Matthew “Max” Kennedy, a son of the late Robert F. Kennedy, attends a ceremony to name the Robert Kennedy Navy Ship at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston. Police say 52-year-old Matthew Kennedy and his daughter, 22-year-old Caroline Kennedy, were taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct and violating the town’s noise law, following complaints about a loud party and fireworks on Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017.

    Authorities in Massachusetts have dismissed a disorderly conduct charge against a Kennedy family member who was arrested last month after complaints about a loud party.

    Matthew "Max" Kennedy appeared in Barnstable District Court on Tuesday. He was found responsible for a noise violation and paid a $150 fine.

    Police say officers responded to a Hyannisport home Aug. 20 for noise complaints. Kennedy and his daughter, 22-year-old Caroline Kennedy, were taken into custody.

    The Boston Globe reports Matthew Kennedy says in a statement he's "happy this matter is resolved."

    Caroline Kennedy is to be arraigned Nov. 22, the 54th anniversary of the assassination of her great uncle President John F. Kennedy. It's unclear if she has an attorney.

    Matthew Kennedy is the ninth child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy.
