CRESTVIEW — A 31-year-old man was arrested after providing a false name to authorities when he was pulled over.

According to an arrest report from the Crestview Police Department, on Oct. 20 police pulled a car over for having unlit tail lights. The driver of the vehicle told the officer he was aware he had a “fuse problem” with the lights.

When the officer asked the driver for his license and registration, the man said he didn’t currently have his license. The officer then asked the driver’s passenger for her information, at which point she gave him her name and date of birth. The officer discovered the woman had an active warrant for her arrest out of Okaloosa county and arrested her on the spot.

The officer asked the driver for his information, and when the officer ran the man’s name through dispatch, the photo that came up did not match the man standing in front of him. The officer noticed a letter in the back seat of the car and discovered the man’s true identity.

The driver’s license status had been revoked.

The man was charged with providing a false name while lawfully detained and knowingly operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.
