Arizonan arrested with fake Calero ID
PHOENIX -- Arizona state police say a man they stopped on a Phoenix freeway for having a low tire has been arrested on suspicion of stealing the identity of Florida Marlins pitcher Kiko Calero.
An Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman says 41-year-old Oscar Corral showed an officer a fake Puerto Rican driver's license with the name of Enrique Calero Carrion. DPS said that's the full name of the Marlins relief pitcher.
Corral also showed the officer a Social Security card with Calero's number during Thursday's traffic stop. Corral was then arrested for possession of forged documents.
DPS spokesman Bart Graves says Corral is a Mexican citizen living in Chandler. He remained in the Maricopa County jail on Friday and hasn't yet been assigned a lawyer.
