Little pro tip here. If you're going to pose as your brother to evade the police, make sure that he's not wanted to! In Singapore, 40-year-old Jason Chia Junjie was wanted to involve two unrelated fatal traffic accidents in 2008 and 2014. He was caught speeding even though his driver's license had been suspended. Junjie claimed to be his younger brother when talking with officers to get himself off the hook. But in an unexpected twist, it turns out his brother was also wanted by the authorities at the time, and so Junjie was arrested anyway. He was later sentenced to nine weeks' jail and fined $5,000. He was also banned from driving all classes of vehicles for 20 years. Details about his brother's case were not disclosed in court documents. (The Singapore Straits Times)
