Perez was put on administrative leave.

Dumel broke his legs in the crash. He was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Dumel told officers his name was Paolo Lafrance.

"It is believed that the defendant gave that name in an attempt to conceal his true identity," stated the arrest affidavit. "Defendant's license is suspended and defendant has a possible warrant for probation violation."

But a man named Paolo Lafrance told Local 10 his identity was stolen four years ago and someone has been using it since.

What police found

Property receipts show police recovered a firearm and magazine that police said Dumel threw out of the car when he first exited Ives Dairy Road. The receipt indicates the gun was fake.

Officers also found a white powdery substance resembling cocaine in Dumel's pocket, according to a police report.
