Waitress Cards Girl for Drink, Gets Own ID

CBS News wrote:(AP) A bar waitress checking to see if a woman was legally old enough to drink was handed her own stolen driver's license, which was reported missing weeks earlier, police said.

"The odds of this waitress recovering her own license defy calculation," police Capt. Guy Turner said Monday.

Maria Bergan, 23, of Lakewood, was charged Sunday night with identity theft and receiving stolen property. She was arrested at her home in suburban Cleveland and was jailed in Westlake to await a court appearance.

The 22-year-old waitress, whose name was not released, called police last week and said she had been handed her own stolen driver's license by a woman trying to prove she was 21. The woman, who became suspicious of the delay as the waitress went to call police, fled the Moosehead Saloon, but her companion provided her name.

The waitress said she had lost her wallet July 9 at a bar in Lakewood.

The victim also had a credit card stolen. The stolen card has been used to make $1,000 in purchases, Turner said.

How stupid do you have to be to use a fake when you are already above the legal age!

Maybe she had her licence taken away for a DWI or something. At any rate, this is the funniest thing I've heard all week. :lol:

It wouldn't be much use for identification if it didn't, would it?

The next paragraph says the waitress is 22 and does not want her name released.
