A WANTED man who gave cops a fake name to avoid arrest was busted after officers spotted a crucial clue in his neck tattoo.
Matthew C. Bushman, 36, was being questioned by police after being reportedly involved in a forgery.
The Illinois man already had a warrant out for his arrest and so stuck his neck out to try to put the officers off his tracks, according to The Herald & Review.
He gave the officers a fake name and date of birth but they were suspicious given that the suspect had "Matty B" inked across his neck.
Bushman was arrested on October 8, 2019, for obstructing justice over the lies.
His mugshot revealed just how obvious Bushman's real name was with it emblazoned on his throat.
It's unclear what was the fake name Bushman used.
It is also not clear why a warrant was initially out for his arrest.

It comes after one woman was left devastated by her ex-boyfriend after she got his name tattooed on her private parts.
Lani Good took to TikTok to warn people not to get people's names tattooed on their bodies after a Valentine's Day conversation with her partner.
Lani revealed the messages the two exchanged and wrote over the video: "This is how my ex-boyfriend spoke to me on Valentine's Day after I got his named tattooed on my privates."
She first contacted her boyfriend saying she couldn't believe he wasn't spending the day with her and asked him whether he ever loved her.
The couple had been together for a year at this point.
When she asked why he had been seeing her for so long, he shockingly responded to her text saying "convenience."
Devastated by his reply, she asked him why he let her cook him breakfast every week and why he asked her to get his name tattooed on her private parts.
Unhappy with the confrontation he told her to "allow it" and that he enjoyed her breakfasts.
She pressed some more, asking if he only ever wanted sex and breakfast to which he agreed saying "exactly."
One woman also got so many tattoos of Eminem that she broke a world record.
Nikki Patterson, 36, of Aberdeen, Scotland, entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the bizarre achievement in September 2020.
A tattoo artist has revealed that despite the endless list of designs people can get inked, there is one basic one she is tired of.
She claimed that there will always be a few men who will request an inking of a pocket watch showing his child's time of birth.
