A 17-year-old Fairfield teenager was charged with misrepresentation of age when he tried to use a fake ID to purchase alcohol Saturday at Grasmere Discount Liquor and Wine, 154 Post Road, police said.

The ID had the teen's correct address, but wrong date of birth, and according to the police report, he admitted the ID was fake and left the store.

Police contacted him at his home. The teen, who was not identified because of his age, was given a court date of March 22.
