LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Brandenburg man was arrested Thursday night after police say he gave beer to his 2-year-old nephew at the Kentucky State Fair.

According to an arrest report, it happened just before 10 p.m. at the beer tents at the fair.

When confronted, Woods allegedly admitted to doing so, saying "he had nothing to give him to drink after feeding him pizza."

Woods was arrested by Kentucky State Police and charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, a misdemeanor.
