A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of using a fake ID bearing the name “Mclovin” to get into a Iowa City bar.
The young man who instantly becomes a legend for his move named Daniel Alfredo Burleson was arrested on Friday night after a police officer spotted him drinking a vodka.
When the cop confronted Burleson he admitted he was drinking a vodka drink but was unable to provide any ID.
The officer then escorted him from the bar and requested that he provide ID to prove his age, He refused to produce his ID.
He showed his real ID which proved he was underage however he was then asked to produce his fake ID.
In the complaint, authorities said Burleson pulled out his wallet and shuffled through it. Officers could see the fake Hawaii ID card with the name “McLovin” and a birthdate of June 3, 1981.
When asked where he got the ID from, Burleson told police he bought it on Amazon. The card was apparently inspired by the 2007 movie “Superbad,” where the character Fogell uses a fake ID bearing the same name to buy alcohol at a liquor store.
Authorities stated Burleson “smelled strongly of ingested alcohol and had slurred speech and bloodshot watery eyes.” He was also wearing a wristband from the bar, police said.
He was taken into custody on suspicion of possession of a fictitious license, unlawfully possessing alcohol, public intoxication and being under the legal age in a bar.
