My friend got her fake ID taken in Maine and she is wondering what the penalties are

Baltimore, MD |

My friend had a fake that got taken away in Maine, and she lives in Maryland. It was taken by a bouncer, but she got a phone call from a police officer saying to call her back. Can you give me an idea of what she should be expecting? She turns 21 in two months.

She used her actual name on the ID and the picture was hers as well, but the state was Virginia.

  1. Here, in MD, you can get a citation for using a fake identification for purposes of buying alcohol. I"m sure Maine has a similar statute. Is your friend in Maine, now? Or back home in Maryland?
