PHOENIX (AP) - A Tempe man is accused of lying about serving in the military to obtain veteran status for his driver’s license and vehicle plates.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says the agency’s detectives have arrested 45-year-old Eric Wolfe on suspicion of forgery and using falsified documents.

Wolfe was booked Tuesday into the custody of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

ADOT officials say Wolfe submitted a document in March to a Motor Vehicle Division representative to get the special license designation.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General, however, determined Wolfe never served in the U.S. Air Force as he claimed.

Wolfe also allegedly used the forged documents to get license plates designated for veterans in March and last month.

It was not known if Wolfe had an attorney.
