For one Florida ex-con, choosing the wrong one meant a return to the slammer.

When Winter Haven Police got a noise complaint Wednesday night, the responding officer found Darius Devonte McClain blasting music from his car stereo.

Rather than give his real name when confronted, the 22-year-old McClain offered the officer his brother’s instead, cops allege.

It was a criminally stupid move on many levels.

McClain, of Lake Hamilton, said he didn’t have his driver’s license on him and gave cops his brother’s name and birthdate along with a social security number belonging to a white man born in 1969, according to police.

As for McClain’s brother, Dequan Gunter from nearby Putnam County in central Florida had a warrant out for his arrest.

McClain, on felony probation for introducing contraband into a detention facility, finally copped to lying to officers.

He is being held at Polk County Jail for giving a false ID and probation violation.
