DEARBORN COUNTY, IN (FOX19) - A man with warrants out of Cincinnati was arrested after giving police a false name during a routine traffic stop in Dearborn County.

ISP Trooper Chris Richey stopped a commercial vehicle on U.S. 50 near Rudolph Way to conduct a routine inspection. Neither the driver nor passenger was wearing their seat belts.

When Tpr. Richey asked the passenger for identification, he said he didn't have his identification with him.  Tpr. Richey had the passenger write his full name, address, and date of birth on a piece of paper.  The name he wrote down was "Rorth Taylor" along with a date of birth.

When Tpr. Richey asked the man how he pronounced his name the man replied, "Robert."  Tpr. Richey then asked the man to verbally spell his name and his response was R-E-R-E-R-T and he spelled his last name as T-A-Y-L-O-E-R. 

After several more attempts and trying to obtain the correct spelling of his name the passenger finally informed Tpr. Richey his real name was Amos Ashley, age 62, of Cincinnati.

Ashley said he had been lying about his name because he thought he had an active warrant for his arrest out of Cincinnati. 

Upon obtaining his true identity and date of birth, Tpr. Richey ran a check on Ashley and discovered he did have an active warrant for his arrest from Cincinnati Police Department for felony auto theft. 

Ashley was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center for the warrant and Tpr. Richey also charged him with Refusal of a Detainee to Identify Himself, a Class C Misdemeanor.
