    The friend pulled out a wallet and opened it. Exposed was a clear plastic window with an ID showing. The friend then pulled a second ID out from under that one.

    The officer asked what the second ID was, and the friend said, “”That’s her fake.”” The officer took possession of both IDs.

    The friend said all three of them had been partying earlier. She started saying that they had been drinking at Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, 1449 N. Cherry Ave., but stopped mid-sentence. She then said that they had been drinking before the party.

    The friend who had provided the IDs also said that when they got to Coronado she was carrying the girl, who was unable to walk, but dropped her twice. Both times, the girl hit her head.
