Tempe Police reported the following incident Wednesday:

A California man was arrested Oct. 10 on the 600 block of South Mill Avenue on suspicion of using someone else’s drivers license, drug possession and drug paraphernalia possession, according to a police report.

The man presented his friend’s driver’s license to enter a Zuma Grill located on the 600 block of South Mill Avenue, police reported.

Zuma Grill took the drivers license and contacted Tempe Police, according to the report. Upon arrival, the man told officers he didn't think using the other ID was a problem because he is 21, according to the report.

The man voluntarily told officers that he had a pill in his pocket that he had purchased for $7, and he hoped it was MDMA, police reported.

The man removed his left shoe, and officers found a single pill containing white powder inside a plastic baggie, according to the report.

The man was transported to Tempe City Jail, where he was booked and held to see judge, according to the report.
