IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Iowa City Police say a man used his brother's name when he was arrested on an OWI charge in May.

A criminal complaint filed in Johnson County says Jorge Antonio Lopez was arrested on May 14, and charged with operating while intoxicated.  During the arrest, police say he used the name Jonathan Lopez.

Police says this caused 19-year-old Jonathan to be prosecuted for OWI and have his license revoked.

Police say they learned that Jorge used the wrong name on Thursday.  Police say Jorge admitted to using the wrong name and doing nothing to remedy it.

Jorge is charged with malicious prosecution.
