Luke Jorris, 18, who lives on campus at FAU, was first arrested early Saturday morning outside Black Rose Irish Pub (234 South Federal). It was there that Boca Raton Police Officer Javier Casas allegedly observed Jorris stumble out of the bar and into a 2004 Mercedes which he drove. He didn’t get far before Officer Casas, in an unmarked police car, stopped Jorris and administered a field sobriety test which the police report says he failed. When Casas searched the vehicle, he allegedly found multiple fake ID’s stating that Jorris was older than 18.
Jorris refused to provide a breath sample but was still charged with DUI and “unauthorized possession of identification.” He was booked into jail and later released on his own recognizance.
Then, late Wednesday night, Jorris was observed drinking in The Whistle Stop (395 NE Spanish River Blvd.) by Boca Raton officers including — you guessed it — Officer Casas. Casas, according to the police report, “grabbed the back of Jorris’ left tricep and directed him outside. Once outside, Jorris asked why he needed to go outside,” to which another officer responded, “underage drinking.” Remember, Officer Casas already knew Jorris was 18 — too young to be in a bar. That reality apparently wasn’t lost on Jorris. According to the police report: “Jorris then looked around and attempted to run South through the parking lot.” Again, he didn’t get far. He was cuffed after a short chase.
Allegedly found on Jorris: More fake ID. Adds the report, “Officer Casas discovered that Jorris was in possession of a fake Texas Drivers’ License which displayed a birthday of April 23, 1997 instead of his actual birthday of April 23, 2002.”
Luke Jorris was again booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of unauthorized possession of an identification card, possession of an alcoholic beverage (underage), and resist or obstruct an officer without violence.
Jorris remains in jail as of 7:26 p.m. Thursday, more than 17 hours after his arrest.
