Max Chodorow: He's Following in Dad's Footsteps, Too

You may have heard about Zach Chodorow's new Hamptons food venture last week. The son of Jeffrey Chodorow, the mega-restaurateur behind China Grill, Kobe Club, and Asia de Cuba (among others), the 22-year-old Wharton grad is now following in his father's footsteps and selling $20 Kobe beef hot dogs outside the Lily Pond club in East Hampton. But there are two Chodorow sons living it up on the East End this summer. There's also Max (he's standing over his brother, left), who will be a sophomore at Boston University this fall. And it turns out he's following in his dad's footsteps, too: He has a criminal record!

Last November, Max was arrested in Pennsylvania for possessing pot and drug paraphernalia. The Chodorows have a house in New Hope, Penn. and Max attended The George School, a private Quaker school in nearby Newtown. Max gave the cops an Aventura, Florida address when he was arrested, though, which is where the Chodorows happen to keep a vacation condo.

Needless to say, the minor offenses don't stack up to the crimes committed by his dad, who spent four months in prison in the mid-1990s after pleading guilty to two counts of obstructing justice in connection with the failure of Braniff Airlines. (Jeff also handed over $1.25 million in restitution and paid a $40,000 fine.) But he's just 19! He has plenty of time to get into more serious trouble! Max's rap sheet below.
