Pick a card, any card: MU man has many IDs
At 12:14 a.m. Saturday, an OPD officer was performing a bar check at Woody’s One Up Bar, 11 S Main St., and noticed a male acting suspiciously. A male recognized the OPD officer, and the officer watched him set his drink down and turn to face the wall, OPD said.
The officer approached him, noticed he wore a wristband, and asked him how old he was. According to OPD, he said he was under 21 and was taken to OPD.
At OPD, the officer found a Pennsylvania driver’s license in the male’s wallet that matched neither his name nor face, OPD said. The officer then found an Illinois license that did match. The male said the Illinois license was real, which confirmed he was 19. While looking through the wallet, the officer found two Miami University IDs, one of which matched the male, with the other belonging to a female.
When OPD called the girl in question, she said she did not know the male and confirmed she was missing her ID. According to OPD, when asked where he got the ID, the male said he had found it while cleaning his house and that he had not used it to purchase anything on campus. He further claimed the Pennsylvania license belonged to his cousin, but when asked where his cousin was, he replied, “at work in Pennsylvania,” and could not give any other information. Over the phone, the suspect’s father confirmed that the license was the property of the boy’s cousin, OPD said.
He was taken to Butler County Jail and cited with underage offenses and certain acts prohibited.
