You don't know this woman. Heck, I don't even know this woman. The question is really, does this woman really know this woman? It turns out; she gave the police a fake name, but the name that she gave was that of a person, who has committed some serious crimes....Oops!
Boston transit police were slapping Tina Lunn with a citation for smoking in a non-smoking area, when she allegedly tried to avoid any penalties by giving a fake name and birth date. However, there was an arrest warrant out for the person with the name that Lunn gave police. Here's what I don't get; an officer won't only ask for your name. They usually ask for a form of ID. How was she able to just tell them a fake name unless she had a fake ID to back it up.
Anyway, although the officer informed Lunn about the arrest warrant, she still didn't reveal that she'd given a fake name. In fact, she went through with the entire booking process using her new assumed name. Um, why the hell would you do that unless you were just a moron. Eventually, police discovered Lunn's real identity. Officers did they that they also discovered that Lunn had several warrants out under her real name, including three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping, larceny, and illegal possession of chemical mace. She was later booked under her real name and charged with brandishing a false name. Oh, yeah; she was also given a citation for the smoking as well.
I mean it makes sense as to why she gave a fake name, but when they told you there were warrants out for your arrest, then you should've made up another one since it seemed that they weren't checking IDs. The thing that baffles me is that this was all over a smoking citation. She was smoking in an area that she wasn't allowed to be smoking in. Does anyone remember the days when you were able to smoke anywhere from bars to restaurants to movies to even sporting events. The problem that I still have with this story is that the police never asked her for her ID. Then again, they were only transit cops.
