Default Applebee’s waitress asks patron for ID, gets own stolen driver’s license in return

Imagine you're a waitress, out with friends on a night off, when you lose your wallet. Cash, credit cards, driver's license—all gone. Your bank later informs you that checks are being issued in your name.

It's a pain, but you carry on. Two weeks later, you're at work when four people walk in and sit in your section. They start ordering drinks. You ask to see their IDs. A woman in the group hands a driver's license to you. You look down, and it's yours.

That is precisely what police in Colorado say happened to Brianna Priddy, a server at a Lakewood Applebee's.

Priddy, though, didn't panic.

"I handed it back to her and said, 'Sure, I'll be right back with your margarita,'" she told Denver's NBC affiliate.

Priddy called the police, and tried to act normal while waiting for them to arrive.

"I put on my server smile and tried to take care of them, but I was shaking like crazy," she said.

When police arrived, the woman, whose name has not been released, was arrested on suspicion of theft, identity theft and criminal impersonation. Police also found narcotics in her possession.

"Dumb criminal," Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis told Denver's 9NEWS. "That's the first thing that comes to mind."

Even dumber: the suspect is 26, Davis said.
This definitely falls into the stupid criminal category. I think I would have had a very hard time staying calm and thinking rationally if I was in the position of that waitress.

There is a video interview if you follow the link.

When I was in college, the first time , my friend had a fake id. I don't recall where he got it, but it wasn't very good. Anyway, he went into a liquor store and "supposedly" the person on the id was a friend of the guy working at the store. He took the id from my friend and that was it.
