Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s son arrested for allegedly using fake ID
PHOENIX — One of Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s sons was arrested at a Scottsdale bar earlier this month on suspicion of using a fake ID.
According to the report from the Scottsdale Police Department, Joe Ducey was at the Boondocks Patio & Grill around 12:55 a.m. on Dec. 16 when he was arrested for using a fake ID to get in.
A Scottsdale officer had seen a man jump the fence to get into the establishment and avoided showing his ID to the security guards.
While looking for the suspect, security located Ducey, who is only 19.
According to police, Ducey was not the man in question, but had admitted to using a fake ID to enter the bar.
The arresting officer smelled alcohol on Ducey’s breath, but stated in the report that he did not appear extremely intoxicated.
Ducey was cited for using the forged South Carolina driver’s license to enter a liquor establishment. He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 15.
In a statement, the governor said his son would “face the same legal and family consequences as any other 19-year old in this circumstance would, and we will handle this the same way any other Arizona family would.
“Thank you for respecting our privacy.”
