Lying Fugitive Caught By Boca Raton Police

higginbothamBOCA RATON, FL ( — Robert Higginbotham is not a very good liar, at least according to Boca Raton Police. The Rhode Island man, who maintains a Delray Beach address, is in the Palm Beach County Jail awaiting extradition back to New England.

Boca Raton Police stopped Higginbotham on Federal Highway late Tuesday night when an officer noticed a broken tail light. Higginbotham then allegedly gave the officer a series of lies concerning his license, his date of birth and his social security number. But since you can’t pull one over on Boca Five-0, the officer suspected something was up and learned that Higginbotham had both a suspended license and a warrant for his arrest out of Rhode Island.

At one point, the arresting officer observed Higginbotham “swallow hard” when he realized he was caught in a lie.
