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.

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. :)

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.
