Willis appeared before a New York judge early on Tuesday and was charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal impersonation in the second degree and consumption of alcohol in a public place. She was released without bail and is due back in court on July 31st.
She was spotted by police Monday morning drinking from a can of Pakistani beer at a subway station near Union Square in Manhattan, the complaint said. It said Willis, a Brown University student, first gave police a New York state I.D. card with the name Katherine Kelly, then showed a California I.D. with her name.
Her attorney Stacey Richman questioned why Willis had not been given a ticket to appear in court at a later date.
"Everyone was her age once, and I don't think this was the crime of the century," said Richman.
It is illegal in New York to drink an alcoholic beverage from an open container in a public place unless one is at a block party, feast or similar function that has a permit.
