(NEWSER) – A big embarrassment for the Biden clan: Joe Biden's younger son, Hunter, was kicked out of the Navy after testing positive for cocaine last year, sources tell the Wall Street Journal.

Biden, now 44, applied to join the Navy Reserve at the age of 42 and was commissioned as an ensign in May last year. He flunked a drug test when he reported to his unit the next month, according to the sources, who say Biden needed waivers to join the Navy because of his age and because of a drug-related incident in his youth. He was discharged in February of this year, and a Navy spokesman says the details of the discharge are "not releasable under the Privacy Act."
