Fife police said a man wanted for a domestic violence assault tried to avoid arrest by using his twin brother’s name.

Officers were called to a home in the 4600 block of Pacific Highway East about 5 p.m. Tuesday after several neighbors reported hearing a loud argument.

While being questioned, the man pretended to be his twin brother because he has an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Auburn.

Police ended up arresting both the man and woman on suspicion of domestic violence, obstructing a public servant and making false statements to a police officer.
