A south Georgia man arrested for possession of crack-cocaine tries to give deputies the wrong identity.

Lanier County deputies say they stopped 29-year-old Jonathan Pridgen Wednesday (2/16/11)on Highway 221 South for speeding.
Investigators say they found traces of powder cocaine, a five-inch straw and hydrocodone and adipex pills in his Cadillac Escalade.

Deputies say after patting him down, they found crack cocaine in the crotch of his pants and a copper brillo-made crack pipe.

They say he tried telling them he was his brother- William Pridgen.
Jonathan Pridgen, who's charged with multiple drug and traffic offenses, is behind bars at the Cook County jail.
