Columbus police are accusing a man of lying about his identity, when they tried to arrest him on various warrants.
Police came across a man they believed to be 27-year-old Stephen Henderson in the 2400 block of North National Road at just after midnight this morning. But Henderson allegedly gave police a fake name and birth date, says Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the police department.
After confirming Henderson’s identity he was arrested on four warrants for failing to appear in court to answer charges including trespassing, conversion and driving while suspended. Police say he is also facing a preliminary charge of making a false identity statement and possession methamphetamine, which was found in a bag concealed in his clothing by jail officers.
