A Bates City man was arrested in Dallas County on a charge of forgery. Dallas County was investigating an alleged violation of an order of protection and was gathering statements from witnesses. While one of the witnesses was filling out a statement he gave the deputy a false identity two times, but was found out when the DOR photo didn’t match his face. Eventually, the man was identified as 45-year-old Christopher Allen Bailey. During the follow-up, Bailey was found to have active warrants as a parole absconder on original charges of drug trafficking, forgery, and a warrant for resisting arrest from Lafayette County. His bond in Dallas County was set at $ 40 thousand dollars. No court date has been set at this time.
