Breitbart news delivered the exclusive report that outlines the 2016 incident, which took place days before the election.
In an unheard of police report, obtained by Breitbart news, a few days before the 2016 presidential election, it looks like Joe Biden’s son wasn’t prosecuted for his involvement with cocaine and a rental car in Arizona.
Breitbart News reported:
Breitbart News has exclusively obtained a heretofore unreported-on police report from days before the 2016 presidential election that describes how a cocaine pipe that authorities determined was used to smoke cocaine was found in a rental car returned to an Arizona Hertz location in the middle of the night.
Also found in the vehicle were several personal effects of Hunter Biden, then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, like two of his DC driver’s licenses, multiple credit cards, and personally identifying information like a Delaware Attorney General badge and a U.S. Secret Service business card that police said bore his name. Hunter Biden, according to the police report, had rented the vehicle from a location in California with the intent to return it to the Prescott, Arizona, location, where it was discovered the morning after it was dropped off with the drug paraphernalia and Hunter Biden’s personal effects inside.
Instead of returning the car keys to the drop box where after-hours returns are supposed to go, the car was returned—according to the police report—with the keys left in the gas tank compartment of the vehicle.
Also found inside the vehicle, per the police report, were two drivers’ licenses both bearing Hunter Biden’s legal name Robert Biden, as well as “some credit cards with the same name,” “a secret service business card,” and an “Attorney General’s badge” all contained inside a wallet that Hertz rental employees discovered—along with a pipe that Hertz employees thought and police later confirmed was used to smoke illicit drugs, as well as “a white powdery substance in the arm rest of the vehicle.”
The next morning, according to the police report, a man who identified himself as “Joseph McGee” called the Hertz rental car counter to inform them of how the keys to the car were left in the vehicle’s gas cap rather than in the normal spot.
“McGee” informed the rental car company employee, according to police, that “his friend was feeling sick so they didn’t know what to do” when the car was returned. Police, according to a supplemental report filed by a Prescott Police Department detective, sought and obtained a subpoena to discover the source of the “Joseph McGee” phone call—and traced it to a phone number owned and operated by a renowned “Colon Hydrotherapist” in the region.
Police attempted to find and interview “Joseph McGee,” but were unable to–and they also, per the documents, attempted to call Hunter Biden himself from the phone numbers he provided to the rental car company.
Prescott Police Department officials were unable to reach Hunter Biden during the investigation for an interview on the matter, though, according to the documents, they did attempt to call him. One of the Prescott Police Department officers who responded to the initial scene wrote that according to his Sergeant, described in the report as “Sgt Small,” the Secret Service had informed the local police that “Robert Biden had been located by the Secret Service and was well.”
Laboratory analysis by the Arizona Department of Public Safety later determined that the pipe discovered in the vehicle was used to smoke cocaine, not meth, but fingerprints were not found on the device.
The 23 pages of law enforcement and police documents repeatedly refer to the suspect under investigation as Robert Hunter Biden and the report type as a “Narcotics Offense.”
Breitbart News is publishing the documents here, with redactions made to remove personally-identifying contact information like addresses and phone numbers as well as the last names of key witnesses.

Two different Prescott Police Department officers as well as a detective conducted an investigation—but ultimately local authorities in both the city and county attorney’s offices declined to prosecute the case. A document shows the reason the county attorney declined to prosecute the vice president’s son is because they thought they would only be able to get minor charges to stick, and kicked it down to the city attorney.
It is unclear from the documents why the city attorney declined to prosecute.
In addition to local police, FBI and the U.S. Secret Service agents were roped into the case, as well. The FBI dispatched agents to the scene, according to the law enforcement documents, and the Secret Service communicated with the various law enforcement officials investigating and confirmed that Hunter Biden was not in harm’s way.
As his father launches yet another bid for the presidency, Hunter Biden has emerged as a major scandal-prone problem for the former Vice President and leading Democrat candidate for the 2020 nomination. Hunter Biden’s position at Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings has come under scrutiny in the wake of his father’s push as Vice President to pressure the Ukrainian government to terminate a governmental investigator, Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma Holdings.
His firm also received a $1 billion private equity investment from the Chinese Communist government after he and his father traveled to Beijing toward the end of Barack Obama’s presidency, and while Hunter Biden’s alleged corruption connections with his father’s official government actions remain the central focus of deep-dive reporting on the Bidens the former vice president’s son has been problematic for the 2020 frontrunner in many more ways too.
Back in 2014, Hunter Biden was discharged dishonorably from the Navy after failing a drug test that his commander said he should have known was coming.
“All sailors would be advised of the zero-tolerance policies when reporting aboard,” Captain Jack Hanzlik, commander of the Navy Public Affairs Support Element based in Norfolk, Virginia, said in 2014 according to USA Today. “And they would be advised of the testing practices of the organization, as well.” Hanzlik was the commander of the unit to which Hunter Biden was assigned for his brief time in the Navy—which according to the Wall Street Journal lasted only a month.
His Navy Commission required multiple waivers—one to waive the age requirement, and another to waive past drug convictions which would have disqualified him. Then, within about a month of his Commission as a Naval officer, he was dishonorably discharged for the positive drug test.
After Hunter Biden’s brother Beau died, he began dating Beau’s widow Hallie—but they reportedly split up in 2019. Hunter Biden’s first wife Kathleen divorced him very messily in 2017. Kathleen alleged in court filings that Hunter Biden blew tons of the family’s money on hookers, strip clubs, and drugs.
While most of these incidents have all been reported publicly, this Prescott, Arizona, incident just days before the 2016 general election has never been reported until now.
This public reporting of this Arizona incident comes in the wake of Joe Biden publicly defending his son Hunter Biden in an Associated Press interview, where the former Vice President was fending off allegations of impropriety regarding the Ukraine situation in particular.
“I have great confidence in my son,” Joe Biden said. “He’s a man of great integrity.”
The police report and this incident is particularly detailed, as officials in the Prescott, Arizona, Police Department investigated Hunter Biden for months—from the time of the actual incident in late October 2016 until at least late February 2017—according to the police filings.
The Biden campaign did not reply to a request for comment on behalf of the former vice president or his son Hunter Biden. The Prescott Police Department did not reply to a request for comment. The county and city attorneys’ offices did not reply to a request for comment. Stangl, and her organization the Grace Grove Lifestyle Center, did not reply to a request for comment, nor did Hertz rental car’s corporate communications officials. The FBI and U.S. Secret Service also did not reply to a request for comment.
Perhaps to a man who thinks that groping every female child he meets is okay, dropping off a rental car with a coke pipe in it does show ‘great integrity.’
At least he didn’t steal the car, right?
