IOWA CITY, IA—As police tell it, there seems to have been only one flaw in a 19-year-old's plan to use somebody else's identification to enter a local bar: The ID he submitted was the bouncer's own.
Iowa City Police gave this account of the incident:
Steven Fiorella, 19, of Iowa City bought an identification card, a debit card and an AAA card for $20 at a party, he later told police.
Early Sunday morning, he tried to use the identification card to enter Union Bar in this community of over 67,000 people.
Steven Fiorella is charged with 5th degree theft and unlawful use of a driver's license. The Union staffer apparently had already reported the items stolen.
