COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- The 25-year-old son of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has been cited for reportedly driving while intoxicated.

Willson Wheeler Nixon was pulled over around 3 a.m. Sunday after allegedly driving without turning on his headlights.

Columbia police arrested him for driving while intoxicated after he allegedly hit a parked car while being pulled over. He posted bond set at $500 at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

A spokesman for Gov. Nixon says this is a private matter and did not comment further.

Willson Nixon is the governor's youngest son and pleaded guilty in June to driving with an excessive blood-alcohol content. He had restricted driving privileges when he was cited Sunday.
