A Lima man has been arrested for fighting and providing a fake ID.
On Saturday at 2:50 a.m., a Bowling Green police officer observed a food truck employee yelling at a male wearing a red shirt in the 300 block of East Wooster Street.
The male then started walking eastbound on East Wooster as the officer stopped and spoke to the food truck employee. The officer was told the male had been starting fights in the parking lot with other customers and failed to leave.
The officer stopped the male and asked for his ID. The male produced a Missouri driver`s license with the name Chase Mason on it with a date of birth of May 5, 2020, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
Dispatch advised that the Missouri ID did not have a match.
The male then advised his real name is Chase Mason and his date of birth was May 5, 2003, and he was from Lima. That identification was confirmed with dispatch, according to the report.
Two customers at 300 E. Wooster St. told police Mason had repeatedly tried to fight with them. They stated they witnessed him tackle another male in the parking lot and that earlier in the night he was trying to start a fight with a female at Downtown Bar.
Mason, 19, had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes and had a hard time understanding anything the officer told him. He admitted to consuming alcohol at a bar and was wearing a camouflage bar wrist band, according to the report.
He was arrested for falsification, underage/under the influence and disorderly conduct/fighting and was taken to jail.
He was released Monday morning after posting bond.
