Scout Willis, 20, was arrested in New York City for allegedly doing what just about every other minor in the world is already guilty of: drinking underage.
A spokesperson for NYPD tells Hollyscoop Scout was arrested when an officer spotted her with an 8-ounce Pakistani beer in Union Square on Monday night.
According to the New York Daily News, Scout reportedly flashed a fake New York ID with the name Katherine Kelly on it. But, when the uniform wasn’t buying it, she produced her California ID that was legit.
When the real ID came out, Scout confessed the truth...
“My name is Scout Willis,” she told the officer. “The first ID isn’t mine. My friend gave it to me. I don’t know Katherine Kelly.”
Yes, it’s insanely common for underagers to get busted, but two things make this different from every other minor who's guilty of a similar offense. One… Scout has famous parents. And, two… She was drinking Pakistani beer.
Seriously, you know you’re spoiled when you’re slurping craft foreign beer to get a sweet buzz and not Keystone Light or a PBR.
Hollyscoop has that Scout is being charged with criminal impersonation and violating local law. According to a spokesperson for the NYPD, she was released without bail and issued a desk appearance ticket. From the sounds of it, only Scout was ticketed and arrested during the incident. She did take a mugshot but that's not being released.
She is expected to appear in court in the near future. An official date was not confirmed.
The aspiring singer last hit headlines in early March when she created a fake Twitter handle as part of a class project at Brown University. The hoax account bashed her celeb parents, claimed she was taking ecstasy, and reported some flirtation with fashion photographer Terry Richardson.
