Scout Willis — the daughter of actor Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore — has reportedly completed her community service following her admittance to underage drinking and carrying a fake ID.
According to reports, 21-year-old Scout Willis was required by a court to put in two days of community service at the New York City Department of Sanitation following her arrest back in June.
Scout Willis, a Brown University student who became of legal drinking age the following month — dodged a criminal record after she agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors.
As previous reports have stated, Scout was arrested last month in a New york subway station after she was spotted holding an open can of beer. Initially, she gave the police a counterfeit ID under the name “Katherine Kelly,” but admitted later that it was not hers.
The aspiring singer was subsequently charged with criminal impersonation and breaking open container law, both of which are misdemeanors.
Stacey Richman, the lawyer of Scout Willis said at the time that prosecutors “took a logical approach to assessing the situation.”
Scout Willis argued that her clean record and outstanding grades meant she should be given the chance to avoid a criminal record.
“Ms Willis is an excellent student at Brown University; she is involved in a multitude of extracurricular activities and is, while maintaining her excellent scholastic standing, pursuing her music career interests
and performing internationally,” Richman wrote.
Richman added, “It seems entirely illogical for the country to saddle this young woman, no different from any of us at that age, with any aspect of a criminal record.”
The deal, and Scout Willis completion of her community service requirement, will see the charges dismissed as long as she keeps herself away from any trouble for six months following the incident.
Meanwhile, the case marks the latest drama for Scout Willis and her high-profile family.
A source told MailOnline that Scout and sisters Rumer and Tallulah had “’broken all ties” with mother Demi Moore, 49, due to her emotional breakdown in the wake of her split from estranged husband, actor Ashton Kutcher.
Moore ended her nearly 13-year marriage to former husband Bruce Willis in 2000.

Scout Willis — the middle daughter of actor Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore — has been sentenced for her underage drinking arrest and possessing a fake ID in New York City.
According to reports, Scout Willis was able to work out a deal with the prosecutors, where they agreed to entirely dismiss her underage drinking and fake ID possession case if she will be able to complete two days of community service and stays out of trouble’s way for the next six months.
As it was previously reported, Scout Willis was arrested back in June on suspicion of drinking alcohol in a public place and presenting a fake ID — both misdemeanors — to law enforcement officers who confronted her. Scout allegedly handed an ID saying she was “Katherine Kelly,” then subsequently ‘fessed up with her real name and California ID. The Brown University student’s choice of beverage at the Union Square subway station was a wee Pakistani beer.
Scout Willis was then initially booked for open container and criminal impersonation.
On Tuesday, lawyer Stacey Richman said prosecutors “took a logical approach to assessing the situation” in agreeing to no jail time or probation in exchange for the two-day community service.
According to the New York Post, the clean record of Scout as well as her outstanding grades at Brown University were considered by the prosecutors, who eventually agreed that she does not deserve a harsh punishment — such as spending time in jail.
Scout Willis, who was 20 when she was arrested on June 4, turned 21 on July 20. She did not have to be present in court during her sentencing.

Scout Willis, daughter of actress Demi Moore, has been arrested in New York City and charged with two misdemeanors for allegedly drinking beer and criminal impersonation for handing out a fake ID.
According to a New York Police Department spokesperson, 20-year-old Scout Willis, who is a student of Brown University, was arrested by the police at 6:30 in the evening, Monday in Union Square due to criminal impersonation for handling a fake ID and violation of the open-container law.
A police officer saw Scout Willis, who’s made a name for herself in the city by singing with her band, drinking an 8-ounce Pakistani beer just before seven in the evening on Monday. When the officer asked for her ID, Willis showed a New York ID card with the name “Katherine Kelly” and the officer continued asking Willis questions.
“My name is Scout Willis,” she reportedly said when she gave her actual California ID. “The first ID isn’t mine. My friend gave it to me. I don’t know Katherine Kelly,” Willis continued, according to the criminal complaint.
Willis was eventually released without bail on Tuesday following her arrest for criminal impersonation. She is said to be younger than the legal drinking age. Scout Willis will return to Manhattan Criminal Court on the 31st of July for her trial.
In March, Scout Willis was said to be one of the voices behind a Twitter feed filled with thoughts about sex, drugs, cigarettes and partying. However, a rep of Willis called the Twitter feed an attempt in testing a theory as part of a college project and “illustrate how social media is utilized.”
