First Lady Cathy Malloy received a ticket last week for not wearing her seat belt, a spokesman said Tuesday.
Malloy was cited by a Hartford police officer and will be paying the fine for the ticket this week, said Roy Occhiogrosso, a senior advisor to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
The state is in the midst of a heightened-awareness period for seat belt violations because the National Click It Or Ticket campaign is running from May 21 through Sunday, June 3.
The news was originally broken by WFSB-TV, Channel 3, of Rocky Hill.
