4:33pm       Mission/Geneva            False Identification
Officers Peregoy, Trail, Hopkins and Uang were patrolling the area of Mission and Geneva when they were flagged down by several uniformed MUNI transit authority inspectors. They informed the officers that they were conducting fare evasion checks in the area and came across a passenger on a Muni bus, which was clearly in violation of a fare evasion. The passenger was being uncooperative and refused to provide the inspectors with her information. The officers went to speak with the passenger, who continued to be uncooperative and provided them with several different names. Officer Trail made numerous computer inquiries and was unable to find any information matching any of the names given. The officers determined the passenger was not being truthful and could possibly be covering a warrant for her arrest, therefore placed her under arrest and transported her to Ingleside station. Once at the station and after further investigation, the officers were able to obtain her true identity. The passenger was cited for providing false identification to a peace officer as well as the MTA MUNI citation for the fare evasion. Report Number 130058397.
