Photo: Man uses Jack Nicholson picture to open bank account
A man carrying a fake ID with U.S. actor Jack Nicholson’s photograph on it was arrested when he tried to open a bank account in the Brazilian city of Recife, police said.
Ricardo Sergio Freire dos Santos was arrested Tuesday at a bank in Boa Viagem, a district popular with tourists in Recife, the capital of the northeastern state of Pernambuco.
The 41-year-old Freire dos Santos was carrying several documents, including an ID allegedly issued by the Security Secretariat in neighboring Alagoas state that bore a recent photograph of Nicholson.
Freire dos Santos was taken to the Abreu e Lima prison on the outskirts of Recife and will be charged with using fake documents and falsifying official documents, police said.
