Dad kicked out of Arizona Cardinals v. Dallas Cowboys game after asking son to hold beer

GLENDALE, Ariz. - John Coulter was enjoying Saturday's Arizona Cardinals' preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys when he asked his son to hold his beer while he snapped a picture.

A few seconds later, two undercover officers from the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control approached him, ABC15.com reported. 

They informed Coulter, who thought it was a joke, that he could be arrested for providing alcohol to an underage person, according to the USA Today report .

Fortunately, Coulter did not get arrested, but he and his 15-year-old son were escorted out of the University of Phoenix Stadium.

According to officials, Coulter was lucky as he could have faced a maximum of six months in jail, a $2,500 fine and three years of probation for the Class 1 misdemeanor.

Despite this, Coulter told USA Today that he was the victim of "abuse and overzealous pursuing of the situation."
