A Commerce woman seeking to avoid arrest on a warrant picked the wrong false name to give police, according to the Commerce Police Department.
Turns out her alias also had an outstanding warrant.
Police charged Christy Renee Gibson, 21, 1068 Old Maysville Road, Commerce, with driving with a suspended license, giving false information to police, a tag light violation, obstruction of officers, violation of the open container law and an outstanding warrant from Stephens County.
According to the arrest report, after she was pulled over on North Broad Street near Hardee’s for the tag light, Gibson told police she did not have her license with her. When the officer ran the information, Gibson asked if she was going to jail, to which the officer replied that she was – for the warrant.
At that time, Gibson ran, but she was quickly caught in the Hardee’s parking lot. When she was booked at the Jackson County Jail, her fingerprints revealed her real name, and she said she’d used her sister’s name because she had an outstanding warrant.
The officer told her, “I guess you didn’t know your sister had a warrant.”
