(WESH-TV) A simple traffic stop led to the arrest of one of America’s most wanted men in Brevard County, Florida.

Dashcam video shows the arrest.

“Brett Bowyer, why did you lie to me?” the arresting officer is heard saying on the video.

Officials said Bowyer gave a Florida Highway Patrol trooper the wrong name when he was pulled over.

After Bowyer gave the trooper the wrong name, the trooper ran a mobile fingerprint test. Troopers said the man’s nervous behavior tipped them off.

The test showed that Bowyer was sought by federal agents. Officials said he is wanted on child pornography charges in Virginia.

Bowyer has been on the run since 2010, according to officials.
