The young man reportedly said the ID was given to him because the man in the picture looked like him, Ouellette said. The young man was not served, and the group was allowed to stay. A summons was issued for the use of the fake ID.

“The department will continue to conduct these checks in the foreseeable future,” Ouellette said.
