New details have surfaced on the Permian High imposter who faked being a 16-year-old basketball player. 22-year-old Guerdwich Montimere's troubles keep stacking up. He turned himself into police again Thursday after being slapped with another charge. Montimere's now accused of tampering with government documents. NewsWest 9 learned exactly what those fake papers were that he passed off.

NewsWest 9 spoke with Ector County ISD police who say 22-year-old Guerdwich Montimere is now accused of using a fake birth certificate and writing false information on his school records. 

Investigators say there is absolutely no indication that Coach Danny Wright, who welcomed the basketball player into his home, will be held criminally responsible. Officials say they do not expect more charges to be filed against Montimere. On Thursday, he paid $7,500 to bond out of jail.

This is after he bonded out Wednesday for not identifying himself to a peace officer. While they've finished interviewing school district employees, police say another person involved may be facing charges but they've ruled out anybody within the school district.
