Police Cite Son of Howard Dean

June 21, 2003|From Associated Press

MONTPELIER, Vt. — Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean said Friday that his 17-year-old son and four other teenagers were cited for attempting to steal liquor from a Vermont country club.

Dean, who canceled several campaign appearances, said his son, Paul, and teammates on a high school hockey team apparently were discovered Friday morning at Burlington Country Club by a police officer on routine patrol.

Dean said it was his understanding that his son would be charged as an accessory to burglary.

"Children do stupid things, and this is one of them," Dean said in a telephone interview with Associated Press from a Minnesota airport where he was awaiting a flight to Vermont.
