This has been chatted about for years. Under California law, failure to
identify yourself is a minor violation. They always dismiss the next day at
your hearing. You don't have to carry ID, you just have to identify
yourself (there's a difference). "my name Jose Jimenez." You still don't
need ID unless you are operating a motor vehicle on public streets and roads
(or maybe catching a plane).
