Seneca Police arrest man who lied about identity because he thought he had an outstanding warrant (he didn't)

(From the Seneca Police Department)

On 12/15/2017 officers initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle where the tags did not match the vehicle. 

While taking the occupant's information, officers quickly learned the passenger was lying about his identity. Officers were able to locate the subject's correct information. 

Officers arrested the driver for active warrants. When asked, the passenger stated he gave a false name because he thought he had a warrant. 

After officers received information that he did not have any active warrants the passenger was placed under arrest. For making a poor choice in judgment, the passenger received a night in the Newton County Jail and was charged with obstructing police.
