False identification in arrest

Man arrested on suspicion of public intoxication identifies himself at defense tackle Fili Moala.

Photo comparisons and fingerprints confirm Moala was not the man.

A man identifying himself as USC defensive tackle Fili Moala was arrested by Claremont police last weekend on suspicion of public intoxication.

That came as news to Trojans Coach Pete Carroll. . . and to Fili Moala.

On Monday, after comparing a mugshot to Moala's roster photo and confirming fingerprint identification, police said the Trojans player was not the man who had been taken into custody early Sunday and released about six hours later with no charges pending after a "standard detoxification."

Moala said after practice that he didn't recognize the man in the mugshot, which was obtained by USC coaches. He also said he had neither lost nor gave out his identification.

"I don't know why someone would do that," Moala said. "I just know I don't want anything to be on my record."
