TWIN FALLS -- An Idaho man who apparently tried to avoid arrest on outstanding warrants by giving a police officer a false name was betrayed by his decision to have his last name tattooed on his forearm.

The Times-News reports 19-year-old Dylan Edward Contreras was arrested early Saturday.

An officer said he told three men who were walking on the street with a dog to move to the sidewalk at 12:30 a.m.

The officer said one of the men looked like he might run away, so he asked them for identification. Contreras identified himself as Emiliano Velesco. A police database search found no matches. The officer had a dispatcher run a check with the birthday he was given and the last name "CONTRERAS."

Contreras had three warrants for failure to appear on charges including providing false information.
