They may also be able to put a MisID comment on the warrant.

No, I did not suggest that the poster should sue the arresting officer. Furthermore, I told him that if he did sue, he might be able to win a civil lawsuit, but since no malace was involved on the officer's part, it is highly unlikely that he would be awarded much money. If neglegent training or neglegent supervision are involved, then that may compound the situation. It certainly doesn't appear to be an egregious state or federal 1983 violation (do your own research on federal 1983 civil rights violations).
I'm just trying to stick to the facts and am not trying to allow bravado or emotionalism to enter the picture.

One other thing...
A letter itself isn't going to stop me. In VA, victims of identity theft can get some sort of official letter saying they're an ID theft victim. If I get a wanted hit on you, and you give that letter to me -- I'll probably ask for a physical description before I hook you. But if dispatch can't get that to me, you might find yourself in the backseat of a cruiser again. (Actually, I try to get a physical anyway; the guy who teaches radio/NCIC stuff at our academy does a dramatic demo with each academy class. He runs everyone until he finds someone who gets a hit by name... Often, it's an alias, and often the physical is nowhere even close. Kind of stresses why you don't arrest solely on the hit, but do some basic confirmation.)
