Willis, a student at Rhode Island’s Brown University, was busted in Manhattan’s Union Square, reports the New York Daily News, with an 8-ounce Pakistani beer. She dug herself into a deeper hole when she tried to pass off a fake ID to a transit cop.
She was charged with violating New York’s open container law and criminal impersonation and taken into custody, though she was released on bail early Tuesday morning.
“My name is Scout Willis,” she allegedly told the cop. “The first ID isn’t mine. My friend gave it to me. I don’t know Katherine Kelly.”
