NEW YORK: Scout Willis, the 20-year-old daughter of Hollywood actors Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, was arrested in New York City and jailed overnight for drinking a beer and giving police a fake identification card, court papers showed.

Willis appeared before a New York judge early on Tuesday and was charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal impersonation in the second degree and consumption of alcohol in a public place. She was released without bail and is due back in court on July 31.

She was spotted by police Monday morning drinking from a can of Pakistani beer at a subway station near Union Square in Manhattan, the complaint said. It said Willis, a Brown University student, first gave police a New York state ID card with the name Katherine Kelly, and then showed a California ID with her name.

Her attorney Stacey Richman questioned why Willis had not been given a ticket to appear in court at a later date.

“Everyone was her age once, and I don’t think this was the crime of the century,” said Richman.

It is illegal in New York to drink an alcoholic beverage from an open container in a public place unless one is at a block party, feast or similar function that has a permit.

    Murree Brewery is a listed company at Karachi Stock Exchange. This company is more than a century old and is a big exporter of beers, liquor and non alcohalic beverages all across the world specially to US and UK. So stop smelling conspiracy please.

    Seriously, how ignorant (or in denial) are people to not know that Murree Brewery is quiet well known for producing and exporting “Pakistani beer” since decades?

    Also, how insecure are they about the beer being mentioned in the news? It happens, people!! Like it or not, you still need to be mature enough to face facts without blaming everything – yet again – on anti-Pakistani saazish??

    Well folks let me tell all of you this kid has no idea what drinking is. Case in point , she is drinking a “Pakistani” beer” . Forget Hollywood A-listers and their children . Most of our own people shy away from our produce . Clearly she just wanted to act wild as most kids do and thought it would be daring to be spotted drinking a beer with “blood and gun powder”

    But I do not understand this. This is an evidence that Murree Brewery’s beer is being smuggled outside Pakistan. As per Pakistani laws, export of alcohol from local breweries is banned. The entire brewery output is to be consumed locally by Non-Muslims.

    And since I have been a part of the audit team of MBCL not once but twice, I know the export ban law for sure. :)
