And then another disturbance erupted and by the time they quelled that, they found a third man outside dripping blood from fresh cuts to his hand and forearm. Read more.

Micro-printed words on real state IDs, like this Mass. license, don't show up on fakes, at least not yet.

The doorman at Bijou on Stuart Street was a bit suspicious of the young-looking woman with the Maine license trying to get into the club one October night, even though her ID checked out OK on the computerized scanner he uses. So he turned to a trick police and the more experienced door staff use to ferret out people with fraudulent IDs: He asked her the state capital. When she replied "Augusta," he let her in - because most people who get fake IDs don't expect to be quizzed on facts about the state they're allegedly from and can't answer such questions.
