Pair kicked out of Arizona Cardinals preseason game and ticketed after teen momentarily holds beer for dad

(KPNX) An Arizona football fan is speaking out after he and his teenage son were kicked out of a Cardinals preseason game and cited for trespassing after he asked the boy to hold a cup of beer so he could snap a photo.

John Coulter says he was approached by two undercover Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control agents after his son held the beer for just a few moments while he snapped a photo of the field.

Officials say Coulter could have faced an even more severe punishment.

"Providing alcohol to an underage person or an underage person in possession of alcohol is a Class 1 misdemeanor." said Sgt. Wesley Kuhl of the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control. "The consequences could be up to, and this is a maximum, of two years in jail, $2,500 fine and three years probation."
