RACINE — Racine County Sheriff’s deputies arrested an Illinois man after his boat was towed to shore by the Coast Guard on Sunday night.

David A. Kives, 51, of South Elgin, Ill., has been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and obstructing an officer. He gave officers two incorrect identities, after which it was discovered that he had outstanding Illinois warrants and a marijuana pipe in his possession.

According to the criminal complaint:

Deputies arrived on the scene as Kives’ boat was being towed into Reef Point Marina by the Coast Guard. Kives said he didn’t have his ID on him, and identified himself to the Coast Guard as Dave A. Aives, also saying his date of birth was August 1968, which was incorrect.

After a records check brought back nothing, Kives then gave his correct name, but again gave an incorrect birthdate. Shortly after the Coast Guard completed its inspection, the Racine County Communications Center advised that they had identified Kives, and that he had active warrants out of Illinois.

After deputies handcuffed Kives, they found a marijuana pipe in his pocket. Also in his pocket was his Illinois ID card.

Kives had a $200 signature bond set at his initial appearance Monday. He’ll next be in court for a pre-trial conference on Nov. 2.
