A recent report by the Arizona Department of Liquor sheds new details on a sad case from the end of last year.  The 19-year-old ASU student whose body was found in the Salt River in December 2012 after a night of drinking was discovered in possession of a fake I.D. in his pocket.  The Tempe bar at which he was drinking has been under investigation and it was found not to have been using their I.D. log properly and therefore cannot prove that they checked all ID’s that night.   Using or possessing false identification if you are under 21 years old, or knowingly providing false statements to a police officer, is a misdemeanor in Arizona.
