What will happen if someone give false personal information to police?
I am hearing conflicting information about this. I watch the news reporting that Translink(BC) is getting void tickets because people were giving police false name or nonexistent address when they were caught for fare evasion. The news is also reporting that Ian Bush(also in BC) was taken to police detachment for having an open beer outside a hockey game and for giving a false name to the officer, he was later shot to death.
It is a bit extreme in both cases. In one hand, police arn't able to confirm the identity of the person who evade fare. In another hand, someone got shot to death for giving a false name.
What will happen if someone lie about no ID on them when police ask for it? And can people refuse police to perform body search?
