SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff made an unexpected appearance at this week’s alcohol board meeting to request a permit for business venture he’s undertaking with his brother.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ti2Hsm ) that Mark Shurtleff and Kevin Shurtleff were approved by the commission to make small aerosol inhalers that contain tiny amounts of alcohol.

Mark Shurtleff is facing bribery charges after prosecutors say he and his successor, John Swallow, traded favors for gifts and cash. Shurtleff and Swallow have not yet entered a plea but have denied any wrongdoing.

At the Tuesday meeting, Mark Shurtleff introduced his brother and let Kevin Shurtleff explain how the product would work.

Keven Shurtleff said the inhaler would have caffeine that gives people an immediate energy boost with one puff.
