BAL HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — Police say the son of Paraguay's president was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor battery and later released, accused of punching someone during a party in suburban Miami.

A police report says officers arrested 28-year-old Juan Pablo Cartes Montana early Sunday in Bal Harbour, a ritzy community north of Miami Beach. Cartes, who is studying English in Florida, is the son of Paraguay President Horacio Cartes.

The police report says Cartes argued with a guest, asked the individual to leave a party at his apartment and allegedly punched the guest in the eye as security guards escorted the guest through the lobby.

The younger Cartes was jailed and released on $1,500 bail. He told El Nuevo Herald he was sorry but the fight wasn't his fault. The guest wasn't identified.
