JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Miller received a citation for a taillight violation in a stop his campaign has raised questions about.

Details were posted on Miller’s Facebook page, in an entry edited several times.

Spokesman Randy DeSoto says the point of the post was that we’re likely to see “political games being played going towards Election Day that would not normally happen.”

DeSoto says Miller passed a truck that hit the brakes in front of him and someone called in a complaint to Alaska State Troopers. He said Miller was pulled over miles later.

Court records show the incident happened Tuesday and Miller was fined $40, with a $10 “police training” surcharge.

He said Miller was not insinuating that troopers were playing games with him or oppose his candidacy.
