What’s in a name? For one Florida ex-con, choosing the wrong one meant a return to the slammer. When Winter Haven Police got a noise complaint Wednesday night, the responding officer found Darius Devonte McClain blasting music from his car stereo. Rather than give his real name when confronted, the 22-year-old McClain offered the officer his brother’s instead, cops allege. It was a criminally stupid move on many levels. McClain, of Lake Hamilton, said he didn’t have his driver’s license on him and gave cops his brother’s name and birthdate along with a social security number belonging to a white man born in 1969, according to police. As for McClain’s brother, Dequan Gunter from nearby Putnam County in central Florida had a warrant out for his arrest. McClain, on felony probation for introducing contraband into a detention facility, finally copped to lying to officers. He is being held at Polk County Jail for giving a false ID and probation violation
Listen, you can clown on Darius Devonte McClain all you want but I’m 100% impressed by what he did. Sure I bet he wishes the info didn’t come back saying he’s either an old white guy or a black dude with a warrant out for his arrest. But the fact is he probably didn’t panic like a little bitch and spit out fake identities that he kept in the back of his mind. Im almost sure any average joe trying to make up a lie by giving a fake name would fold under the pressure. I don’t know why he would use an old white guys identity, maybe it helps get him further in life applying to jobs or his credit score or something. Either way its impressive. I mean name and birth date is one thing, but social security number? Thats some David Webb/Jason Bourne multiple aliases type shit.
