The laws on fake ID's in the US have gotten much stronger in recent years. In college, an organization I was in had a party busted and the University had us bring a LCE Officer (Liquor Control Enforcement) to explain the laws to us. If you're caught with someone else's ID you can get hit with identity theft and all which comes with it, which is life altering for someone who's not a professional athlete.

Of course, I'm sure not all officers actually go that far unless they feel someone really deserves it, and I'd imagine they feel Sheahan has enough problems with the DUI then to pursue how he got the ID.
