Scout Willis rejects plea deal

Los Angeles - Scout Willis has rejected an offer to plead guilty following her arrest on suspicion of underage drinking.

The 20-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore was charged with two misdemeanours on Tuesday after being arrested for allegedly drinking beer at New York's Union Square on Monday and giving officers a fake ID, but she doesn't want to end up with a criminal record over the incident.

Explaining why she won't be pleading guilty, Scout's lawyer Stacey Richman told People.com, "It would be outrageous to mark a person that's clearly going places - clearly seeking to have a career...with a criminal record. The goal is clearly a non-criminal offer."

The lawyer went on to describe the student as "clearly intelligent" and "devoted to her studies" and branded the arrest "ridiculous".

Fake ID

She added: "Seriously, you were underage once...who wasn't looking to get into a bar?"

It is claimed that Scout was drinking a beer and when an officer approached her she produced a fake ID with the name Katherine Kelly on it.

After further questioning, the Brown University student confessed her real name and allegedly said: "The first ID isn't mine. My friend gave it to me. I don't know Katherine Kelly."

Scout was released without bail early on Tuesday and will return to Manhattan Criminal Court on 31 July.

    "a person that's clearly going places.." and what places would they be? Better she take her medicine now and learn the limits of her "celebrity". And get a lawyer with an ounce of sense. Just ask Lindsy Lohan where this attitude will take you.

    What she actually meant to say was: Here officer I found this persons id card and wish to hand it in. A misunderstanding really. The liquid was cold drink in a alcohol container, unless of course they have analyses from a lab?
