ALBANY, N.Y. — New York Gov. David Paterson says the debit card his son had when stopped by police was found near a subway garbage can and never used.

In his first comments since his 15-year-old son, Alex, was stopped by police Tuesday, Paterson emphasizes there was no arrest.

He tells Fox News that his son was playing dice, not for money, with some friends when he was stopped near his high school in Manhattan.

Paterson’s son and another boy were issued juvenile reports for loitering with the purpose of gambling. A juvenile report is kept on file at the police precinct and with the police department’s youth services division until the person turns 17. Then it’s purged.

The teens don’t have to appear in court and weren’t charged criminally. They were released to relatives after a few hours.
