Manuel Asensio: Man of Many Birth Dates
During run-ins with Florida police, Asensio
has given three different dates of birth. The first occasion was in 1980,
when he was cited for
driving without a license in Broward County. Apparently, Asensio told the officer that he was born on December 30, 1955.
A year later, he was again stopped in Broward County for driving without a license. He was aware that he had failed to show up for his
court date on the 1980 violation, with the result that an open warrant was out for his arrest. Presumably, Asensio realized that if he
gave information matching the previous year's ticket, the warrant would be triggered. He'd be taken into custody and would probably
spend a night in jail.
So he did three things to make it appear that
he was not the same Manuel Asensio stopped in 1980. He didn't give his middle initial,
as he had done previously. He gave his uncle's address in Miami, instead of his parents' address in Boca Raton. Also, he gave a different
birth date: January 30, 1954.
The birth dates on both of these tickets were false. They were ever-so-slight variations on his true date of birth. The first time, he
changed his birth year from 1954 to 1955. The second time, he used the true year but changed the month from December to January.
Asensio's true date of birth is December 30, 1954. It is shown on two arrest records from the Miami courthouse.
