President Bush's 19-year-old daughter, Jenna, was cited early 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 age 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 and we're not going to comment on her personal life," said Noelia Rodriguez, spokeswoman for first lady Laura Bush.

Bush and her twin sister, Barbara, graduated from high school last May in Austin. Barbara Bush attends Yale University.
