FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A son of Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul has been cited for driving under the influence of alcohol in Kentucky.
Police in Lexington say William H. Paul was driving a 2006 Honda Ridgeline at 11:24 a.m. on Sunday when he crashed into the back of an unoccupied parked car. Some people nearby heard the crash and alerted authorities.
Lexington Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said Paul was treated at the University of Kentucky hospital for minor injuries to his face. She said a police officer cited Paul for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and failure of a nonowner/operator to maintain insurance.
Paul was alone at the time of the crash. He was not arrested, which Roberts said is standard for this type of case.
A campaign spokesman said Sen. Rand Paul does not comment on any private matters in regards to his family.
