Man with name tattoo tries to give police different name

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A 19-year-old Idaho man with his last name tattooed on his forearm apparently tried to give police a fake name and was arrested.   

The Times-News reports 19-year-old Dylan Edward Contreras was arrested early Saturday on outstanding warrants.    

An officer says he told three men who were walking on the street with a dog to move to the sidewalk, and that one looked like he might run away, so he asked for identification.    

Contreras identified himself as Emiliano Velesco, and a police database search found no matches. The officer then had a dispatcher run a check with the birthday he was given and the last name tattooed on the forearm.  

Contreras had three warrants for failure to appear on charges including providing false information.
