A 55-year-old Onsted man is scheduled for Feb. 19 arraignment in 14A District Court after allegedly providing false identification to Saline police during a traffic stop Jan. 24.

Police were stationed at City Limits Pancake House watching for lane use violations on Michigan Avenue when they saw a Mercury Mountaineer go from the right lane to the left laine and cut off another driveway. The driver was stopped near Express Tire on West Michigan Avenue. The man told police he did not have identification and gave the name of his younger brother. The officer noted the driver was much heavier and harrier than his brother.

The man told police he panicked and gave him the wrong name.

He was cited for not having insurance and providing false identification to police. His vehicle was impounded by America 1 Towing.
