    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . It is possible she could be booked under your name. She will likely be booked under whatever name she gives the police, althought they doublecheck the name she would give with other information, such as ID she has on her, what information comes up from running her fingerprints, or if the police know her personally.
    If she does get booked under your name, contact an attorney for help in straightening it out and getting your name cleared.
