Scout Willis Arrest: Daughter of Bruce and Demi Rejects Plea Bargain
Scout Willis, the 20-year-0ld daughter of Hollywood stars Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, has rejected an offer to plead guilty after she was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of underage drinking.
“It would be outrageous to mar a person that’s clearly going places – clearly seeking to have a career … with a criminal record,” Scout’s lawyer Stacey Richman reasoned to PEOPLE after his client’s arrest. “The goal is clearly a non-criminal offer.”
In addition to the underage drinking allegations, reports say that Scout also presented police with a fake ID when asked about her age during the incident.
The NY Daily writes:
[Scout] gave the officer a New York ID card with the name Katherine Kelly, but the cop didn’t fall for it… After she was questioned further, Willis brought out her real California ID.
“My name is Scout Willis,” she told the officer, according to the complaint. “The first ID isn’t mine. My friend gave it to me. I don’t know Katherine Kelly.”
According to Richman, the entire fake ID story is a lie.
The lawyer explained “Scout was honest about who she was. She is a very proper, very impressive, smart young woman. She presented her own ID. . . . She did not know who the other person on the other ID is.”
After spending Monday night in a NY jail cell, Scout Willis was released without bail on Tuesday and is due back in Manhattan Criminal Court on July 31.
She faces two criminal misdemeanor charges: impersonation and breaking the open container law.
