    LUDLOW, Kentucky (AP) -- A man tried to buy a vote with a 12-pack of beer, according to police in northern Kentucky.

    Edward Lucas offered the beer to an 18-year-old student at Ludlow High School in exchange for a no vote on a proposed increase in school property taxes, Ludlow police officer James Tucker said in an affidavit.

    Lucas was charged Friday with making or receiving expenditures for vote, a class D felony that can land him in prison for one to five years.

    Lucas, 40, denied the charge.

    "I don't know the boy, and that's not exactly what was said," Lucas said.
