A man who allegedly attacked a patron at a bar at the Portage Mall early Wednesday morning, can now add identity deception to the list of new charges against him. The Times reports 20 year old Trenton Wilson lied to police after his arrest, informing them he was 24 year old Jeremy Macon, of Hammond. The real Jeremy Macon, who now resides in Cleveland, Ohio, reportedly contacted the Times and informed them of the identity deception, which was confirmed by Portage Police today.
The Times says Wilson originally faced a battery charge after punching a man who reportedly told him to stop insulting the female bar tender. According to the article, Macon had lost his wallet some years ago, and use to work with Wilson.
