ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville women's soccer player has been suspended after being charged with making and selling fake IDs.

Nineteen-year-old Peyton Roehnelt was escorted off campus after being arrested Friday.

The Alton-Telegraph reports her arrest came after a police officer in Kansas found a fake ID on one of Roehnelt's teammates they had pulled over for a DUI. The teammate allegedly told their coach she had gotten it from Roehnelt.

SIUE Police Chief Kevin Schmoll says Roehnelt admits making the driver's licenses from Kentucky and South Carolina for about a year, and had sold about 30 of them for $50 a piece. She sold some on campus and some through the mail.

She's charged with one count each of making and possessing a fraudulent ID card.

Roehnelt has been released on her own recognizance.
