Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested early Sunday after police received several complaints of a loud party and fireworks at a Hyannisport home, Barnstable police said.

Matthew M. Kennedy, 52, of Hyannisport, and his daughter Caroline R. Kennedy, 22, of Pacific Palisades, Calif., were taken into custody around 1 a.m. They were charged with violating a town noise ordinance and disorderly conduct. Both charges stem from the party, police said.

The older Kennedy is the ninth child of Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Skakel Kennedy.
