TRENTON, N.J., July 18 (UPI) -- A New Jersey woman alleged in a lawsuit that the woman accused of being a prostitute who allegedly catered to New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer stole her identity.

Ashley Dupre was accused of using a driver's license bearing the name of Amber Apraio in order to get herself into a "Girls Gone Wild" video that was widely circulated on the Internet after the Spitzer prostitution scandal broke.

The Star-Ledger newspaper of Newark, N.J., said Dupre was underage at the time the video was produced several years ago.

Arpaio, a resident of Wall Township, said she is also suing the producers of the video on the grounds they knew Dupre was using someone else's identity and used the footage to promote it.
