Per Local10.com in Florida:

Miami-Dade police arrested a man who used former Miami Hurricanes running back Najeh Davenport's name after leading detectives on a chase.

Police originally identified the suspect as Najeh Davenport, who was arrested outside Jackson Memorial Hospital Thursday afternoon, and listed his birth date as February 8, 1979. Those matched the former Hurricanes and NFL running back's.

Police then identified him as 36-year-old Damian Coleman. They said he was in possession of Davenport's drivers license. ... Someone claiming to be Davenport called Local 10 saying they had the wrong name. Local 10 encouraged him to call police, who then identified Coleman as the suspect.

Be that as it may, Davenport is still on the hook for this. That reminds us: A friend of ours -- a Packers fan, no less -- went so far as to order and wear a Najeh Davenport jersey bearing the number 2 on back. Good times, good times.
