Scout Willis's attorney has branded the star's arrest on Tuesday "ridiculous".

The 20-year-old, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, was charged with two misdemeanors in New York City after allegedly drinking a beer in Union Square and handing cops a fake ID.

Willis's lawyer Stacey Richman has now told People that the star will not plead guilty to the charges because it would mean she had a permanent criminal record.

"It would be outrageous to mar a person that's clearly going places - clearly seeking to have a career... with a criminal record," Richman said. "The goal is clearly a non-criminal offer."

Richman added that Willis is "clearly intelligent" and "devoted to her studies", saying: "Seriously, you were underage once... who wasn't looking to get into a bar?"

Willis was released without bail on Tuesday and is due in court on July 31.
