    Scout Willis is doing everything she can to avoid having a rap sheet.

    Stacey Richman, an attorney for the 20-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, confirms to E! News that Willis was charged with two misdemeanor counts stemming from her underage drinking bust on Monday in New York City.

    Aside from the underage drinking charge, the other count is for criminal impersonation after she was caught presenting her arresting officer with a fake ID before eventually coming clean with her true identity.

    Richman tells E! News that Scout rejected prosecutors' offer to plead guilty because she didn't want the charges going on her permanent record and will fight to make sure the incident never appears at all.

    "It is an inappropriate offer for someone of her history," Richman said.

    Richman added that she's in the process of filing motions and is having on-going discussions with the D.A.'s office handling Willis' case.

    "Our end result is having no criminal record whatsoever," she said.

    Meanwhile, a source close to Scout tells E! News that her run-in with the law is "a surprise" because she's historically been the least trouble-prone of her sisters growing up.

    "She's always been the responsible one," notes the source. "She has been mothering Demi for years."

    The insider added that Willis is a straight-A student at Brown University and speculated that she's possibly going through "a rebellious phase."

    Lastly, the source said that Scout is much closer to her father, Bruce, than to Demi, pointing out that during her mother's infamous meltdown earlier this year Scout holed up in Providence and purposely stayed out of the drama.

    "Scout is all about doing her own thing," said the source.

    Let's hope for her sake she gets out of this legal snafu unscathed.
