A 36-year-old Trenton, N.J. man who, according to police has been arrested under three different names previously, allegedly attempted to use another person's identification when stopped on Interstate 95 in Bensalem.

Eronus Blay, of Jarvis Place, was arrested on Oct. 28 and charged with a felony count of identity theft, as well as unsworn falsification to authorities, false identification to law enforcement and driving under the influence of alcohol, all misdemeanor offenses. 

Blay was also cited with summary charges for allegedly having an open container of beer in his car, driving 87 in a 55 mile-per-hour zone and driving while his operating privileges were suspended, according to court documents.  

The Pennsylvania State Police stopped Blay at 1:42 a.m. on Oct. 28 after police said he had been seen traveling in the center lane of Route 95 at a high rate of speed, according to court records.  

Blay, who police said provided a driver's license in the name of another man, allegedly maintained his identification as that man until an investigation proved otherwise, according to police. 

He refused a portable breath test, according to police, but was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital for a blood test. 

Police said he had an open bottle of Guiness beer in his car at the time of his arrest.

Also in Blay’s possession were “various documents containing the names and identifying information of approximately 10 other individuals,” police wrote in the affidavit of probable cause.

Blay has been arrested previously in Pennsylvania under the names Elisha Lean Howard, Deshawn Wade and Breyan Harris, according to police. 

Blay is being held in the Bucks County Correctional Facility in lieu of $35,000 bail. He awaits a preliminary hearing this week.
