YOU DON'T KNOW JACK! BRAZILIAN


COPS BUST MAN USING FAKE
NICHOLSON ID (IN ENGLISH)
by Marilia Brocchetto and Ed Payne, CNN

Some people just can't handle the truth. Others have a tough time with the
lies, too.
Civil police in the northeast Brazilian city of Recife arrested Ricardo Sergio
Freire de Barros after he tried to open a bank account using a fake ID with a
picture of Jack Nicholson.
Just a small problem: the 41-year-old Barros looks nothing like the 74-year-old
Oscar-winning American actor, one of the most-recognizable men in the
world.
Nicholson has been nominated for an Academy Award 12 times, and has won
the Best Actor Oscar twice -- for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and for "As
Good as It Gets." He also picked up an Academy Award for Best Supporting
Actor for 1983's "Terms of Endearment."

English)

Before his arrest on Tuesday, police had been tracking Barros for three
months, following multiple reports of fraudulent activity, police Chief
Erivaldo Guerra said.
He said the suspect was using the fake IDs to open bank accounts and credit
cards with high limits, and then defaulting on the debts.
When Barros was arrested, he had six different IDs and various checkbooks
and credit cards, police said.
To his credit, Barros didn't use Nicholson's name, instead signing the card Joao
Pedro dos Santos.
He's charged with use of false documents and falsification of a public
document.
Barros is being held in jail awaiting trial.
