A waitress who had her driver’s license stolen last month found it - when a customer pretending to be her used it to order drinks at an Applebee’s. Waitress Brianna Priddy told Colorado news outlets, "Four people come in, walk in, sit down. They start ordering drinks. This girl hands me my ID as a fake ID." Then, "I didn't say anything.

The identity thief had been writing checks in Priddy’s name during the time her license was missing.
