Oregon fugitive arrested at UT Arlington using alias

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon fugitive recently arrested at the University of Texas at Arlington has a history of using aliases and used a fake identity to enroll in a graduate program there. 

The Mail Tribune reported Monday that 42-year-old Daniel Charles Ray Hanson was jailed in Fort Worth on a felony charge of tampering with a government document.

Police at UTA worked with law enforcement in Oregon and California to identify Hanson and arrested him in Atlanta in October.

Police records obtained by the newspaper detail a months-long investigation across three states to identify and arrest Hanson.

University police first began their probe when a routine background check prompted by Hanson’s angry classroom outbursts raised red flags.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Hanson had retained an attorney.
