BRAZILIAN police have arrested a man for attempted forgery after he attempted to obtain a bank account using an identification certification with a plainly obvious picture of the famous actor Jack Nicholson.
Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros, 41, was arrested in the city of Recife and has since been charged with using false documents and forgery, police advised.
 
Ricardo was also carrying id documents belonging to other persons.
A clear copy of the identification 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 reported Freire de Barros was already being investigated for fraudulent activity when he was arrested.

I wonder if he was a hummer driver
