Cops in Los Angeles, California yesterday tweeted a fake driver’s license bearing President Rodrigo Duterte’s photo.
“Vice officers recognized the picture used on a fake ID, to be that of the President of the Philippines,” the Los Angeles Police Department Rampart said.
“Good thing our Officers patrol Historic Filipino Town and are up to speed. Nice try,” it added.
