Man gives false name to avoid arrest

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A man who had an active warrant against him tried to avoid his penalty by giving officers a false name during a traffic stop.

Now 30-year-old Brandon D. Phelps of North Ky. 1223 of Corbin, is answering not only his past charges, but some current ones as well.

Phelps was involved in a routine traffic stop on Saturday, just after 12 noon on J. Chesnut Lane, 11 miles south of London. After Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott determined Phelps was driving under the influence, he found Phelps had an outstanding warrant against him. Phelps had given the deputy a false name because he knew he had a warrant against him for flagrant non-support. Parrott also found marijuana, rolling papers and other paraphernalia in Phelps' possession, which resulted in more charges against him.

He was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, unsworn falsification to authorities, possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication of controlled substances.

Phelps was taken to the Laurel County Detention Center following his arrest.
