SHREVEPORT, La. -- A series of unfortunate coincidences led to a case of mistaken identity that put a Louisiana minister behind bars for nearly eight hours.

Gregory Jones, pastor at Eden Worship Center, was pulled over for speeding and arrested as a man wanted for violating parole in Texas.

The minister not only had the same name as the wanted man, but the same birthdate -- and a Texas driver's license. So he wound up handcuffed and taken to a Shreveport jail.

Caddo Lt. Don Gibbs says the department was sorry for Jones' inconvenience but committed to ensuring wanted criminals don't accidentally go free
