     But one of the advantages of being a lame duck governor is the actor-turned-politician can focus on being Arnold the dad and not Arnold the candidate.

    Schwarzenegger's 17-year-old son was identified by police officers as one of the co-host of a Halloween party on Sunset Boulevard that got a little too loud and a little out of hand.

    The Los Angeles Timesreports about 100 people attended the party but there were a few minors cited for underage drinking.

    The governor will be happy to know his son was not one of them.
