FORT WORTH - A woman was arrested and charged with failure to identify after she told authorities that her sister was responsible for her public intoxication charge in an attempt to avoid arrest, according to a Fort Worth police report.
Open records obtained by WFAA from the Fort Worth Police Department reveal that the 24-year-old woman, Angelina Parson, was checking her mail on Feb. 18 when she got a letter from an attorney informing her that she had a warrant out for her arrest.
She wasn't aware of a warrant, records state, so she looked up the case number online and discovered a charge of public intoxication with a $390 fine.
She then contacted police and said she believed her sister was actually the one who was arrested. She told police she and her sister look alike but haven't spoken in years.
She gave police her sister's information and was subsequently arrested.
