A local man was charged with allegedly forging a check in order to enroll in cosmetology school.

Rashoud Gayden, 25, address unknown, was charged May 29.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Gayden altered both the amount of the check and to whom it was made out in order to enroll in cosmetology classes at the Salon Professional Academy.

The director of the academy questioned the authenticity of the check, and Gayden apologized and told her he would get his life together, the complaint said.

Forgery is a Class-D felony punishable by up to five years in jail and a maximum fine of $7,500.
