    Inasmuch as this was in California, I would really question their right to demand ID. The California constitution explicitly guarantees citizens a right to privacy. I suggest this means they would need a pretty good reason to demand ID. They could maybe demand it during booking, perhaps.

    I wouldn't make a federal case out of it. I'd make a state case.
