Father & Son Kicked Out of Game Over Beer

Just after the opening kickoff of the Arizona Cardinals’ pre-season game against the Dallas Cowboys, Cardinals season ticket holder John Coulter wanted to take a picture.

So, he asked his 15-year-old son to hold his beer cup while he did so.

Seconds later, two undercover cops with the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control swooped down – and escorted the father and son out of the game.

The cops say what he did was illegal – providing alcohol to an underage person. Even though it was his son and even though his son didn’t actually drink it.

The cops went so far as to say Coulter could have actually been arrested for it.

Keep in mind here … The dad didn’t get into a rowdy fight with other fans. All he did was have his son hold a plastic cup of beer.

So we have undercover police officers at games now. Guessing it may be post 9/11 so I get keeping an eye on the crowd when it comes to the possible threat of terrorism (though even that may be a bit extreme) but how many of you shared your first beer with your dad or mom? I know I did. And I was a lot younger than 15. And the dad didn’t even get the beer for his son. The son did not drink it. He was HOLDING a beer for his dad while pops took a picture. That’s it. Absolutely ridiculous that they were escorted from the stadium. What’s your take on this? Over-protective laws? Or were the authorities acting in the best interest of the minor ‘child’?
