A Bryan woman who has an outstanding warrant from the County of Grimes was arrested earlier this month Boulevard Street in Bryan. And as Bryan P.D.’s Public Information Officer Kelly McKeethan tells it, she wasn’t even driving at the time.
After a vehicle was stopped for having a headlight out, McKeethan, when the passenger got out and attempted to leave, which raised some suspicions with the officer. Bryan Police Officer Michael Jones’ suspicious were raised even higher, she adds, when the passenger gave a false name.
McKeethan says she identified herself as Bridgette Denise Swanson, but did not know her address or her social security number, and she misspelled her middle name.
Following a little on-scene investigation, Officer Jones discovered that her name was actually Belinda Faye Swanson, Bridgette’s twin sister. He also discovered that she had an outstanding warrant out of Grimes for Assault Bodily Injury Family Violence.
And the funny thing, Officer McKeethan tells Navasota News, is that because Swanson was just a passenger, had she not tried to leave its quite possible that she would not have been arrested.
Swanson was taken to the Brazos County Jail where, as of the latest report, she is still residing on a $13,000 bond, charged with Failure to Identify Fugitive from Justice and the Grimes County Warrant.
