An Austin man faces two counts of felony forgery and is on a Immigrations and Customs Enforcement hold following a Friday traffic stop.

Nicolas Millan-Aviles, 21, is scheduled for arraignment Dec. 23 and could face deportation.

According to a criminal complaint, Millan-Aviles was pulled over around 7:30 p.m. after an officer saw him driving down the middle of the road.

Millan-Aviles and two passengers in the car spoke limited English, according to the complaint. Only the driver eventually provided identification — an international driver’s license with no passport or local ID.

Millan-Aviles also did not provide proof of insurance.

The three were arrested. While at the jail, officers found three other forms of identification on Millan-Aviles, including a Mexican driver’s license and a U.S. Social Security card. The documents had different birth dates listed than his international driver’s license.

When asked about the discrepancy, Millan-Aviles admitted that be bought the Social Security card, the complaint states.

A registered alien card on Millan-Aviles’ person was also found to be linked to another individual. An ICE agent said Millan-Aviles was not found in a federal database and was likely in the country illegally.
