Blotter: Report: 19-year-old woman charged after leaving bar

A 19-year-old woman out to have some fun was arrested by Denton police shortly after she left a Fry Street bar, officials said.

Police said shortly after 2 a.m. Friday, they observed a vehicle pull past the barricades of a closed roadway in the 1200 block of West Hickory Street and saw someone get out and move to the passenger seat of the vehicle. When the vehicle was stopped by an officer, the driver was determined to be under age and to have consumed alcohol at a bar on Fry Street.

The teen also had four false temporary driver’s licenses in her purse, reports show. She was taken to the city jail and charged with driving under the influence and tampering with a government record.
