MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police video shows Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's son never identified himself as the governor's son during a traffic stop but offered several times to get out and walk back to the governor's mansion.

A Maple Bluff Police officer pulled over a state van near the mansion on Aug. 18 because three people were in the two-person front seat. One of the three people was Alex Walker.

The officer's body camera shows Alex Walker offered several times to get out, walk back to the mansion and have the Capitol Police drive him to his friend's new apartment in downtown Madison.

Alex Walker did say the driver was a state employee but didn't speak his name.

The officer let the trio go with a warning.
