LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky authorities say they have cited U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's 20-year-old son on alcohol possession by a minor at a Kentucky racetrack.
Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control spokesman Dick Brown says agents cited William Hilton Paul on Friday during a "targeted enforcement detail" at Keeneland in Lexington.
Brown told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/16VTQ8S ) that William Paul can pay a $25 fine and court costs in advance or appear in court Nov. 15 to answer the citation. Paul is a full-time student at the University of Kentucky,
William Paul also faced alcohol-related charges in North Carolina this year, but they were dismissed in a deferred prosecution program.
Rand Paul spokeswoman Moira Bagley had no comment on the latest citation.
Keeneland spokeswoman Amy Gregory also declined to comment.
