Good Enough for Police Work

Police in Arlington, Texas, are trying to figure out how Francisco Daniel Romero spent nine days in jail after being picked up on a warrant for Francisco Javier Romero. An Arlington cop pulled over Daniel for an expired inspection sticker and found that a man with a similar name had an outstanding warrant from Dallas for a 1999 murder. Arlington police say the Dallas cops told them that the number on Daniel's driver's license matched the one on the warrant. Problem No 1: There is no driver's license number on the warrant. Problem No. 2: Dallas police say Javier had no driver's license.
