Actor Migo Adecer has already apologized for his unruly behavior when he was arrested for side-swiping two traffic personnel last week, but that doesn’t mean he’s getting away completely scot-free.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) said that they will charge the actor for falsification of public documents today for presenting a fake driver’s license when he was arrested in Makati’s Poblacion village last week when the incident happened.
The PNP said that the Land Transportation Office (LTO), the government agency responsible for issuing drivers’ licenses, has determined that Adecer’s license was falsified.
Prior to injuring two government personnel in Poblacion, Adecer was caught committing a traffic violation in the nearby Rockwell complex, Rappler reported.
In that incident, he allegedly gave a different driver’s license, one which displays a different birth year from the version which he surrendered when he was caught in Poblacion.
In a statement released today by the Makati PNP, it said that the LTO will issue a certificate proving that the license was inauthentic.
“It was resolved during the conference that the LTO will issue a Certification attesting that the driver’s license presented by Adecer to the police is fake and the Makati PNP will file [a] criminal case for Falsification of Public Documents,” the Makati PNP said, according to The Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Meanwhile, the LTO is looking at the possibility of suspending and even permanently revoking Adecer’s license because he has already committed four reckless driving cases.
The 19-year-old actor was arrested on March 26 after hitting two Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) personnel while he was driving his Subaru BRZ. He ran away from the crime, and after authorities caught up with him, became belligerent and shouted “this is corruption” when he was being arrested and told to give up his license.
However, the two MMDA employees decided not to charge Adecer of reckless imprudence after the actor promised that he will shoulder their medical expenses, the Inquirer reported.
