A word to the wise: If you are going to use a fake identification card, don’t use a photo of one of the most famous actors in the world.
Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros was arrested Tuesday in Racife, Brazil, for attempting to open a bank account with an ID featuring Nicholson’s mug, CNN reported.
Barros, 41, used a recent photo of the 74-year old actor. He could have at least gone for a photo of Nicholson during his “Batman” days, when the actor was a few years younger.
Police tracked Barros down after three months of following multiple counts of fraudulent activity.
He is being charged with use of false documents and falsification of a public document.
