Terrible Identity Thief of the Day: A man from the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife was arrested today and charged with falsifying public documents after he attempted to open a bank account using an ID with a photo of world-renowned actor Jack Nicholson.

It was one of several ID cards found on his person. The Brazilian news portal G1 notes that the 41-year-old does not resemble Mr. Nicholson.

Authorities say the suspect is denying the charges against him, and “said he will only speak in court.” Whether or not he thought the prosecution could handle the truth remained unclear.
