Teenager Arrested After Calling Police To Have Fake ID Returned To Her
| Last updated
A teenager called the police after her fake ID was confiscated while trying to get served in a bar.
Eighteen-year-old Blakelee Sands, from Edmond, Oklahoma, was pulled up when she tried to use her ID card, which read 'McKamie Queen', at a bar on Tuesday (2 February).
Not one to be fooled so easily, the bartender quickly realised it was a bogus piece of ID and that Ms Sands was not in fact 21, and promptly confiscated it.
Thinking on her feet, the confident teen decided to phone the cops and asked them to get it back for her.
When officers from Edmond Police arrived at the bar, Ms Sands continued to claim that it was legit.
But when they ran the card through the Texas licence database, it showed that McKamie Queen's ID was in fact linked to a Robert Sanchez.
Clearly underestimating the lengths to which the police would go to uncover the truth, Ms Sands eventually came clean and admitted that it was a fake.
She was then arrested on suspicion of presenting a false ID with the purpose of misleading officers, and was and taken down to Edmond City Jail.
According to reports, the teenager's bond and trial details are yet to be released.
But while this was certainly a bold attempt, Ms Sands is not the first, and surely not the last to try and pull the wool over a bartender's eyes.
Back in 2019, a 20-year-old American man was arrested on suspicion of using a fake ID with the name 'McLovin' to get into an Iowa bar.
Daniel Alfredo Burleson was cuffed after he was spotted clutching an alcoholic drink in a local bar, according to FOX.
When he was confronted by police, it is claimed he admitted to drinking vodka. He didn't provide his ID so was removed from the bar, and eventually ended up handing over the document which showed he was underage.
He was then asked to show his fake ID, but he denied having one.
However, when Burleson was flipping through his wallet, the cops spotted a Hawaiian ID card featuring the name 'McLovin' with the date of birth as 3 June 1981.
Yep, that's right, Burleson had in fact purchased a replica of the fake ID used by Fogell (played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse) in 2007 hit film Superbad.
According to FOX, authorities claim that Burleson 'smelled strongly of ingested alcohol and had slurred speech and bloodshot watery eyes'.
He was also wearing a wristband from the bar, police said.
