An Applebee’s waitress was handed her own stolen license when she asked a woman who ordered an alcoholic beverage for her ID. Using every ounce of energy she had to keep cool, Brianna Priddy never said a thing to the imposter, she went in back and called the police, according to Fox News live on Friday, March 8, 2013.
Priddy’s wallet had been stolen two weeks earlier and the culprit was writing a slew of bad checks using Priddy’s ID. Priddy said that instead of showing this woman just how infuriated she was, something came over her and she went along like everything was just fine, according to ABC News on Thursday.
She said she first went to her managers to tell them that she was just handed her own stolen license as proof of age for a customer who just ordered a cocktail. Priddy then called the police.
While on the phone to police, this is when it really hit her and she started shaking. The person on the other end at the police station asked her what the woman looked like, not actually getting the point that the woman was in the restaurant at that moment.
Priddy then said to the police dispatcher, “No, she is sitting in the restaurant, You need to get down here now,” and that’s what the police did, come right down to Applebee’s.
The unnamed imposture was apparently not very bright because she was 21 and she could have used her own ID as proof to purchase an alcoholic drink. The woman also did not look a thing like Brianna, but she was brazen enough to hand the waitress a stolen ID with someone else’s picture on it.
If this woman had paid attention she would of seen she was handing the waitress her own drivers license. A Lakewood, Colorado Police Department spokesperson, Steve Davis, told ABC News on Thursday that the police are suspicious because this woman, who was of legal drinking age, would opt to use a stolen ID instead of her own.
The woman was arrested and at the time drugs were found on her. The imposter faces charges of drug possession along with theft, identity theft and possibly criminal impersonation, the latter three of which are all felonies, according to Davis.
Priddy said she had about $500 in cash when her wallet was stolen while at a friend’s house, which was not recovered. After working in law enforcement for over 30 years, Davis says this ranks in his “top few” most bizarre criminal circumstances.
