The Brown University student was released without bail Tuesday and ordered to return to Manhattan Criminal Court on July 31. The celebrity spawn was nabbed just before 7 p.m. Monday by a transit cop who spotted her with an 8-ounce “Pakistani beer,” according to court papers.
After she was questioned further, Willis brought out her real California ID.
“My name is Scout Willis,” she told the officer, according to the criminal complaint. “The first ID isn’t mine. My friend gave it to me. I don’t know Katherine Kelly.”
The aspiring singer was charged with criminal impersonation and breaking the open container law, both misdemeanors. Scout Willis’ lawyer, Stacey Richman, said she didn’t have any details about what her client was drinking, but denied the police were misled.
“She was honest about who she was. She is a very proper, very impressive, smart young woman,” Richman said. “She presented her own ID … She did not know who the other person on the other ID is.”
