Sen. Rand Paul’s Son Cited for Alcohol Possession

William Hilton Paul, the 20-year-old son of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), was cited over the weekend for being in possession of alcohol at a Kentucky racetrack. Dick Brown, the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control said that Paul was caught with alcohol during a “targeted enforcement detail” at the Lexington racetrack.

Sen. Paul’s son can either pay the $25 fine and court costs or agree to appear in court on November 15 to contest the charge.

“William Paul also faced alcohol-related charges in North Carolina this year, but they were dismissed in a deferred prosecution program,” Talking Points Memo reported.

William Paul is a full-time student at the University of Kentucky.
