Police in BRAZIL have arrested a man for attempted forgery after he tried to open a bank account using an id certification with a picture of the well known actor Jack Nicholson.
Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros, 41, was arrested in the city of Recife and charged with forgery, police advised.
 
Ricardo also had in his possesion identification documents belonging to other persons.
A copy of the document released by police shows a photo of Nicholson's face next to the signature of  "Joao Pedro dos Santos" and a fingerprint.
"The document with the photo of the actor and other false identification were used to start a fictitious company and with it, also open a bank account," said Erivaldo Guerra, who leads the civil police investigation. "That way, he would use the limits on the cheques and the credit cards" to steal money.
Police also advised Freire de Barros was already being investigated for fraudulent activity when he was arrested.

I wonder if he was a hummer driver
