SEATTLE -- A man suspected of shoplifting beef jerky at a downtown Seattle market was arrested on an arrest warrant accusing him of murder in a fatal crash.

Police say the man originally gave a false name and claimed he didn't have any identification on him when he was questioned early Monday morning, but he was wearing a dog tag around his neck with his name.

A records check turned up the arrest warrant in connection with the crash in September of last year, and the 47-year-old who didn't pay for a snack was booked into jail.
