(Scroll down for video) A woman who tried to get out of a smoking citation, got herself into more trouble.

Police in Boston, Massachusetts, spotted 37-year-old Tina Lunn, smoking in a no smoking area at the Quincy Center station.

Officers pointed out that there were several no smoking signs in the area. Lunn tried to avoid the penalties by giving a false name and date of birth.

However, unfortunately for her, the woman whose name she used, was wanted by police and there was a warrant out for that woman’s arrest.

When Lunn was informed of the arrest warrant, she did not inform the officer that she lied. Instead, she went through the booking process, using the new fake name.

After a while, police figured out that she was that woman and they discovered her true identity.

Officers said they also found that Lunn had several warrants out for her arrest under her real name. The charges against her include three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping and illegal possession of chemical mace.

Lunn was booked under her real name for the warrants. She was also charged with brandishing a fake name, and she received a citation for smoking.
