Man Arrested For Felony False Impersonation After Giving Brother's Name During Traffic Stops

RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) — Police arrested a 31-year-old Rancho Cordova man on Saturday after his brother showed up to traffic court in his place.

The Rancho Cordova Police Department said their traffic unit stopped the same man three separate times within a two-week period for speeding, no proof of insurance, and not possessing a license. When the officers went to traffic court, they say the person present was not the man they had stopped three times.
