Liquor violation: “Thou shall not lie”

On July 4, as an officer was making his rounds, he noticed a suspicious vehicle parked at a Wells Fargo parking lot. As the officer approached the vehicle, the car door opened. There was a strong odor of alcohol. The officer asked the three individuals to step out of the vehicle.

The 18 year old driver appeared intoxicated and provided false information to the officer. The driver was charged with minor intoxication in a public place and for lying to the officer about his real name and other information. 

When asked by the officer why he lied, the male replied, “Honestly I was just scared when you pulled up… I just made up a name and I know it was not right.” The male driver and two other occupants who were not cited were released.
