First rule of using an alias: Make sure you can spell it

A Crestview woman who had trouble remembering how to spell her first name was arrested by an Okaloosa County Sheriff's deputy for falsely identifying herself to a law enforcement officer, the Northwest Florida Daily News reports.

On June 11, the deputy pulled over an SUV for crossing the center lane. While speaking with the driver he recognized the passenger as a woman who had four outstanding warrants for failure to appear. He asked the woman her name and date of birth. She gave him a name but had trouble spelling the first name. The deputy warned her that if she weren't telling the truth she could face criminal charges.

The deputy pulled up booking photos to identify the woman and confirmed it when he pulled the driver aside. The woman was charged with misdemeanor falsely identifying herself to a law enforcement officer.
