  • Around 10:48 a.m. on March 23, a Bradley custodian turned in what appeared to be a student’s Illinois driver’s license to BUPD.

When officers spoke with the student, they admitted that the driver’s license was fake and that they used it to purchase alcohol. Officers confiscated the fake ID and referred the student to the Office of Residential Living and Student Conduct. BUPD will send the fake ID to the Illinois Secretary of State.
