JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico police chief is facing heat after the Transportation Security Administration revealed he had two names.

KOB-TV reports (https://goo.gl/Jch5d8) that Jemez Springs Police Chief Shane Harger was recently detained by TSA agents at Albuquerque International Sunport for having a different name on his boarding pass than his I.D.

The name on his New Mexico driver’s license is Braxton Haze.

The police chief said he changed his name in connection with a 2007 case involving former Albuquerque officer Levi Chavez later acquitted of killing his wife, Tera, and making it look like a suicide in Los Lunas.

Harger says he used to be a deputy in Valencia County and was the first to arrive at the scene the night Tera was found dead.

The village council opted this week to keep Harger as chief.
