DAYTON, N.Y. (WIVB) - Deputies say a man repeatedly tried to give them a false name in an attempt to avoid a warrant that didn't exist.
Authorities stopped Daniel Hart of West Seneca on Rt. 62 in the Town of Dayton last Thursday night. The Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office reports the 20-year-old repeatedly gave a false name to deputies, believing he had an active warrant out in another jurisdiction.
But authorities say no warrant existed. However, for giving a false name, Hart was arrested and charged with false personation.
He's due back in court at a later date.
