Perez Arrested? Close Enough!

The TMZ tip line paid off again -- well, kinda sorta.

Someone sent an email to TMZ's "Contact Us," saying he had a bud in law enforcement who saw Perez Hilton in the slammer.

It took some digging and expert photography analysis -- but TMZ determined it was not Perez -- it was his "separated at birth" soul mate, Jason Davis!

Our tipper clearly wasn't the only one who's confused the two. Check it out.
