Local police were conducting a road safety checkpoint on KY 185 near Independence General Baptist Church yesterday when a Brownsville man stopped around 3:45pm and gave them what he claimed to be his real name and date of birth.
One of the deputies said that he recognized the man as a former school acquaintance and knew the info he was giving was false. After further investigation, police discovered that the man's true identity was actually Kevin Dalton, 29, of Brownsville, and that he was also wanted on an outstanding child support warrant that police said was in the amount of $17,000.
Dalton was arrested and charged with Contempt of court libel/slander resistance to order, Flagrant non-support, and Giving officer false name/address.
Dalton was transported and lodged in the Hart County Jail on two cash bonds, one in the amount of $14,718, and another for $17,000.
