Actress Tara Reid was left red faced at a star-studded celebration before the Kentucky Derby horse race at the weekend (07MAY05) when she reportedly misplaced her identification.

Louisville police officials refused to let the party-loving star into the bash on Friday night as she couldn't prove she was who she said she was.

After a lengthy chat, the authorities decided to let Reid enjoy the party, but not before the altercation was caught on camera.

Reid insists the matter was completely blown out of proportion.

She later said, "I was waiting for my friend to come in."
