Scout Willis gets community service

Los Angeles - Scout Willis has been ordered to complete two days of community service after she was arrested on suspicion of underage drinking.

The 20-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore received the punishment on Tuesday after she was charged with two misdemeanours following an arrest for allegedly drinking beer at New York's Union Square last month and giving officers a fake ID.

A Manhattan judge agreed to close the case without jail time or probation if she completes the community service.

Her lawyer Stacey Richman said prosecutors "took a logical approach to assessing the situation".

'Devoted to her studies'

Explaining Scout's decision to plead not guilty last month, Richman said: "It would be outrageous to mar 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".

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."
