Impostor attempts to infiltrate Brick Street

At 12:54 a.m. on Monday, an officer was called to Brick Street Bar and Grill, 36 E High St, to a report of an unwanted male who would not leave. When the officer arrived, he was informed by an employee that a male had tried to enter the bar four times after being repeatedly told to leave. The male had tried to disguise himself by turning his shirt inside out and attempted to enter a fifth time. When the officer asked the male if he had attempted re-entry, he said that he was trying to get his real ID from the bar. The male then presented the officer with an under 21 Ohio driver's license which came back as valid. The male had an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his breath and was transported back to OPD. The male continued to say he had been trying to get back into the bar to retrieve his real ID, despite being informed that he was in possession of his ID. The male was charged with Trespassing and Underage Intoxication.
