A driver gave cop false name but then couldn’t spell it

A Florida driver was pulled over for an improper tail light. She was arrested after she gave the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office deputy a name she couldn't spell.

The 27-year-old woman gave her correct birth date but said her name was Coronica Jackson. When the deputy asked her to spell it for him, she said it was C-o-r-i-c-a. When her passenger nudged her in the shoulder, the driver spelled it C-o-r-n-a-i-c-a. Finally her passenger spelled it C-o-r-o-n-i-c-a.

The deputy went back to his car to pull up the name in his computer. The photo did not match that of the driver.

She was charged with driving with a suspended license and giving a false name to law enforcement.
