A Nebraska man wanted on two warrants was Tuesday arrested after he tried giving police a false name, while wearing his real one on a badge around his neck, authorities said.

Markel Towner, 26, was sitting in his car when officers looking for a suspect who matched his description for a domestic assault approached and asked for his name, the Lincoln Police Department said. The officers were aware they were looking for a man by the name of Markel Towner.
