A game warden in Texas stopped a pair of men fishing without valid fishing licenses. One of the men didn't have proper identification.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the man without the ID knew he had active warrants for his arrest and in an effort to deceive the law enforcement officer gave the warden the name of a friend.

As it happens, the man whose name was given to the warden also had warrants for his arrest, so despite his attempt to dupe the warden, the man was taken into custody anyway.

While he was being booked into jail under the false name, the man admitted to his lie and booked under his real name with the additional charge of lying to a police officer.
