University of Phoenix StadiumOne father is in hot water after putting his son in a compromising situation.

Arizona Cardinals season ticket holder John Coulter made the trek to University of Phoenix Stadium to see his team match up against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, but he didn’t end up being able to stay to see the game. Just after the opening kickoff, Coulter wanted to take a photo, so he asked his 15-year-old son to hold his beer cup while he posed.

A few seconds later, undercover police officers from the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control approached Coulter. Coulter says the officer told him that letting his son hold his beer cup was illegal and he could have been arrested for it. The officers didn’t take it that far, though, and instead escorted Coulter and his son from the stadium, according to USA Today Sports.

According to officials, the situation could have ended up much worse for Coulter.

“Providing alcohol to an underage person or an underage person in possession of alcohol is a Class 1 misdemeanor,” said Sgt. Wesley Kuhl of the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control. “The consequences could be up to, and this is a maximum, of two years in jail, $2,500 fine and three years probation.”
