DECATUR, Ala. (AP) – Decatur police have arrested a man they say tried to pay a court fine with counterfeit $100 bills.
Authorities say 22-year-old Deborious Rashad Swoopes of Decatur is charged with possession of a forged instrument in the case.
Police say they received a report in July that someone had used two counterfeit $100 bills while paying a fine at the magistrate's office.
An investigation identified a suspect, and police said Monday Swoopes has been arrested.
Police say Swoopes was taken to the Morgan County Jail with bond set at $5,000.
Court records are yet available to show whether he has a lawyer.
