Remember way back in June, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's 20-year-old daughter Scout Willis was arrested for the monstrous crime of drinking a beer while underage at the Union Square subway station? Well, Willis is fighting back against her misdemeanor drinking-in-public charge, saying the specific 8-ounce can of Pakistani beer she was charged with drinking doesn't exist, thus rendering the charges null. Apparently, as a Muslim country, Pakistan has only one brewery which a) does not export beer to other countries, and b) doesn't make beer in 8-ounce cans.
Willis' lawyer, Stacey Richman, will be using this airtight argument to ask for a dismissal from the prosecutors in the event that they don't actually have this can of beer as evidence, saying there's no proof to support that the Brown University student was even drinking alcohol at the time of her arrest. Though, of course, if Willis wasn't illegally drinking alcohol that night, why did she give the cop a fake New York State ID with the name Katherine Kelly? A mystery is afoot!
Willis will be back in court on July 31, and if the prosecutors agree to Richman's request, she'll receive an "adjournment in contemplation of dismissal" (ACD), which would adjourn the case for six months to a year, after which the charges would be dismissed pending further good behavior from the defendant.
Meanwhile, it appears this ordeal isn't warranting much support from Willis' famous mother, who suffered a very public breakdown/possible drug problems after her break-up with Ashton Kutcher early this year. The Daily News reported today that neither Willis nor her sisters, Rumer and Tallulah, are speaking to their mother due to a series of recent fights and blowups.
