Man gives fake name to Hackettstown police, eventually identified and arrested

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A Morris County man was arrested Thursday night after Hackettstown police said he gave them a false name.

On June 24, at around 8:10 p.m., police responded to Municipal Lot#2, located at 195 Sharp St, in reference to a possible intoxicated driver. When officers arrived on location, one male was sitting in the back seat of the pickup truck and four other males were standing around the vehicle, police said.

One of the men who reportedly was operating the vehicle, denied being the driver and provided the officer with his name. The officer then located a photo identification card with a picture of the man and had the name of Juan Cristian Osorio-Vazquez, which was not the name provided to the officer, police said.

It was determined that Osorio-Vazquez, 33, of Dover provided the officer with a false name and he had a $750 Dover municipal court traffic warrant, police said.

Osorio-Vazquez posted the bail on the warrant. He was charged with hindering and released pending a court appearance, police said.
