EASTON, Pa. -

A man who was stopped for driving without his headlights turned on gave a false name to police three times, officials said.

Jamil K. Henderson identified himself as Ezra Kasim Robinson after he was pulled over near the 13th intersection of Route 22 around 12:35 a.m. Wednesday for not having the headlights on his green Chevrolet Cavalier turned on while he was traveling west on Route 22, officials said.

Henderson repeated the false name a second time to the officer who stopped him, and again while he was being fingerprinted at the state police barracks in Bethlehem, officials said.

Police eventually identified Henderson by his fingerprints, officials said.

Henderson, 22, of Newark, N.J., was arraigned on a charge of giving false identification to a law enforcement officer and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $10,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. July 24.
