Noelle Bush Biography
Noelle is the daughter of former Florida governor Jeb Bush and his wife, Columba, and the niece of former U.S. president George W. Bush. She has two brothers: George P. and John Jr. (known as Jebby). Noelle made news headlines on 29 January 2002 when she was arrested by Tallahassee police and charged with prescription fraud after she tried to buy the sedative Xanax at a local pharmacy. The case received extra attention because it echoed the 2001 arrests of Noelle Bush's cousins, Jenna & Barbara Bush, for underage drinking. In February 2002 Noelle Bush entered an Orlando drug treatment center. In July of 2002 she was jailed temporarily after she was found in possession of prescription pills, a violation of her court-ordered treatment plan. In September 2002 she was back in the news after police visited the drug treatment center and found Bush in possession of cocaine. She was sentenced 17 October 2002 to ten days in jail for violating the terms of her court-ordered drug treatment program.
