BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A Berkeley County woman was arrested after giving a false name to police which had warrants attached to it, according to authorities.

On Wednesday, 32-year-old Kimberly Inez McClam was arrested for driving under suspension and providing a false identity following a traffic stop for driving with improper temporary tags in Sangaree.

Deputies say, when stopped by deputies, McClam used a name that was not hers in an attempt to avoid being arrested for driving with a suspended license.

The false name, however, was attached to a person with outstanding warrants.

The sheriff's office says the passenger, David George Epps, 40, who was carrying 'brass knuckles' and 25 tablets of hydrocodone pills during the stop, was also arrested.

Epps was charged with drug and weapons violations.

Both, Epps and McClam, were transported to the Hill Finklea Detention Center and are pending bond hearings.
