City man charged in fake ID case - 08/24

CUMBERLAND — A city man remained jailed Friday afternoon on $100,000 bond stemming from various charges filed after true identity was discovered through fingerprint analysis, according to the Cumberland Police Department.

Brandon Bryant Butler, 23, was served a warrant Thursday charging him with four counts of personal identification fraud to avoid prosecution; two counts each of false statement to a police officer and obstructing and hindering police, and single counts of second-degree assault, obstructing justice reckless endangerment, displaying government identification belonging to another person and displaying license not issued to him.

Following a bond hearing, Butler remained confined at the Allegany County Detention Center in lieu of $100,000 bond following district court bail review.

Butler is also wanted on an active arrest warrant in Frederick County, police said.

The warrant in Allegany County for Butler’s arrest was issued after Butler posed as a relative during a previous incident investigation by Cumberland Police on Wed-nesday. In that incident, Butler was arrested for assaulting a domestic partner and giving officers false personal identification during the investigation. Butler’s true identity was determined through fingerprint identification, which also revealed the arrest warrant on file in Frederick County, police said.
