AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — President Bush's 19-year-old daughter, Jenna, was cited Friday for alcohol possession by a minor, police said.

The ticket was issued by Austin police who were checking for minors in possession of alcohol at nightclubs along the city's popular East Sixth Street.

Officers questioned Bush and another woman they believed to be under 21 at about 1:30 a.m. They were given a citation but were not arrested.

Bush is a freshman at the University of Texas at Austin.

White House officials would not discuss the incident. "We respect the privacy of this young woman," said Noelia Rodriguez, spokeswoman for first lady Laura Bush.
