Brazilian police say a suspected fraudster is accused of using a fake ID with a photo of Jack Nicholson.
Ricardo Sergio Freire de Barros, 41, more than 30 years younger than the Oscar-winning actor, was arrested Tuesday in the city of Recife after police tracked him for three months as part of a fraud investigation, CNN reports.
Police Chief Erivaldo Guerra said the suspect allegedly used fake IDs to open and default on high-limit bank accounts and credit cards.
The fake ID has a straight-faced picture of the 74-year-old American actor with the name Joao Pedro dos Santos, police said.
Nicholson, 74, is a thee-time Academy Award winner for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Terms of Endearment and As Good as It Gets.
Barros is charged with the use of false documents and falsification of a public document.
