Even if you give them a false name and you don't have an ID, they can legally hold you for up to 36 hours to find your identity. And WHEN they find that you lied to them, you are in up to your forehad in deep doodoo. As previously stated that part varies from state to state and sometimes even county to county. All in all, don't do it.

Since you confessed it to her (hopefully before she ran the name) you will probably get off from it or a fine for obstruction. If you provided a fake ID, then that is a federal offense and you will get jail time.
