Xavier sophomore guard J.P. Marcura had a dilemma on Wednesday night. He wanted to go to a bar named "R.P. McMurphy's" and get drunk, but he's not 21.

He solved his problem with a fake ID, which was good enough to get him into the kind of generically Irish-themed "pub" we all love to know. His night ended with a 2 a.m. trip to jail after he pulled his pants down at the bar and furnished a fraudulent ID to responding law officers, who charged him with obstructing official business and disorderly conduct. 

From Cincinnati's wcpo.com:

Macura, 20, was “making unreasonable noise or an offensively coarse utterance, gesture or display or communicating unwarranted and grossly abusive language” at Oakley bar R.P. McMurphy's Wednesday, according to a complaint filed by police.

While police were investigating the incident, Macura handed an officer a Tennessee ID with the name “Myles Fox Morrissey” -- the name of another Xavier athlete -- with an earlier birthdate, according to another complaint from police.

Macura's lawyer plead "not guilty" for his client Thursday. Macura isn't due back in court until early May.
