PARSONSBURG, Md.- A Parsonsburg man was arrested after police learned he provided them with a fake name and pretended not to speak English, according to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.

Police said they responded to a car in a ditch on Dagsboro Road Sunday morning. The driver of the car pretended not to speak English and gave police a fake identity, but couldn't provide any form of identification. 

After other people arrived at the scene who knew the driver, police identified him as 18-year-old Gerardo Antonio Henriquez-Vasquez which was not the identity he claimed prior, according to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office. 

Police said they were able to locate Henriquez-Vasquez passport and discovered he could speak English.  He was placed under arrest and told police he lied about his identity because he did not have a Driver's License. 

Henriquez-Vasquez was charged with false statement, vehicle driver giving false and fictitious name to law enforcement and driving without a license, according to Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.  He was released by the District Court on personal recognizance.
