Police: Sister’s ID theft brings felony charges

A Spokane woman's alleged attempt to hide her identity during a drunken driving arrest apparently backfired - twice.

Police suspected Megan M. Managhan, 28, was drunk when she was stopped last week at University and Springfield for an alleged vehicle equipment violation.

But Managhan added to her charges when police say she used her 26-year-old sister's name.

Turns out the younger Managhan has a suspended license. But that additional misdemeanor was dropped when police learned Managhan's true identity after checking her mug shot and tattoos. In its place are four felony forgery charges related to paperwork Managhan signed using her sister's name, police said.

Managhan, who had been cited and released, was re-arrested Wednesday. She's already on probation for a drunken driving conviction March.
