San Marcos, Tex. authorities have busted a fake driver license scheme that provided licenses to some Texas State University students.

The 20-year-old sophomore engineering student, Jake Waldrep, has been charged with 14 counts of delivery or manufacture of a counterfeit instrument.

Numerous other individuals whom police believe Waldrep had supplied the fake licenses to, were later identified.
