POLICE ARREST MAN CLAIMING TO BE LOUIS ARMSTRONG
MAN HAD FIVE CITY WARRANTS, POLICE SAY
OKLAHOMA CITY — A man attempting to hide his identity from police may decide to try using a different name in the future. He told officers that his name was Louis Armstrong, according to a police report released on Tuesday. Police said they made a routine traffic stop on Nov. 19 near the intersection of NW 16th Street and Kentucky Avenue. When the officer asked everyone for identification, everyone complied — except one man, the police report said. The man told police he didn’t have identification and then gave them a birthdate, Social Security number and told them that his name was Louis Armstrong. Police said they didn’t believe the man was telling the truth, but went to run the information. After no information matched what the man gave them, police said they arrested the man. After the man was arrested, police said he fessed up to them. Louis Manuel Dunlap, 38, was arrested for false information to a police officer. According to the police report, Dunlap had five city warrants.
Readers are invited to submit the most appropriate moral for the story.
But EVERYONE knows who Louis Armstrong is!
I have my own criminality to “fess” to: this story appeared today on the www.koco.com. website, which sternly says that it can’t be republished, reprinted. Will KOCO forgive me? I hope so: I am laughing too hard to consider such things . . .
