Fort Payne Woman Arrested in Northwest Georgia

Fort Payne (Alabama) resident Dana Michelle Tidwell, 50, was arrested in northwest Georgia in connection with her signing her daughter’s name instead of her own while getting a ticket in Floyd County.  Reports said that authorities later found out Tidwell had lied about her identity in an effort to avoid arrest because she was a wanted fugitive.

Tidwell is charged with first degree forgery, identify fraud, giving false information to police and a safety belt violation.

The initial traffic stop was conducted back in December of 2019.
