A man is facing multiple charges after using a fake ID with the name "McLovin" to drink at a bar in Iowa.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, police arrested 20-year-old Daniel Alfredo Burleson, Friday, after an officer spotted him with a drink in his hand. Burleson admitted that the drink had vodka in it.

Officers then asked for his ID.

At first, Burleson refused to show the officer any identification, but later showed them a real ID card that indicated he was under 21-years-old. He said that he didn't have a fake ID, but officers said they spotted a “fake Hawaii ID with the name ‘McLovin DOB 06/03/1981.”

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Burleson told officers he bought the fake ID on Amazon.

Burleson was arrested and was charged with public intoxication, possession of a fake ID, possession of alcohol while underage and being in a bar after 10 p.m. while underage.

He is now facing multiple charges including public intoxication, under legal age in a bar, possession of a fictitious license, and possession of alcohol while underage.
