A traffic stop on Interstate 30 early Tuesday morning resulted in the arrested of two New Jersey men, accused of falsely identifying themselves to Sulphur Springs Police during a traffic stop.

A Sulphur Springs police officer contacted the pair after conducting a traffic stop on a Kia sport utility vehicle on Interstate 30 at mile marker 122 at 2 a.m. Oct. 8.

The occupants were asked to identify themselves as a result of a probable cause search of the SUV, the officer alleged in arrest reports. A 27-year-old Newark, N.J. man in the car reportedly initially identified himself as John Johnson and gave a date of birth. A 42-year-old Edison, N.J. man in the SUV allegedly identified himself as Steven O’Donnell and gave a date of birth and ID card.

The names and information provided by the pair were found to be false, according to police. The younger man reportedly was identified by a New Jersey driver’s license photo by another name. The name and date of birth given by the older man was found to be false, and the ID to be fake, the arresting officer alleged in arrest reports.

The pair remained in the county jail late Tuesday morning, Oct. 8, for failure to identify by giving false information. Bond was set at $2,000 on the Class A misdemeanor charge, according to jail reports.
