Stripogram copper walks on offensive weapon rap
Justice is served, and a stripper walks free. Two police officers had followed and arrested a young man on his way to perform at a strip club, citing an impersonation offence. The charges have been dropped.
The 24-year-old stripogram charged with possessing offensive weapons after Aberdeen's finest spotted him en route to a gig carrying two batons and a spray canister has been cleared on all charges, the Telegraph reports.
Aberdeen uni genetics student Stuart Kennedy was clocked wearing a fake police uniform by two officers on 17 March in the city's Bon Accord Street. He explained: "I said I was not a police officer, I said I am a stripper. They followed me into the bar, watched the show, then asked me to go back to the station.
"It was all quite friendly. When I went back later they said they were going to charge me. I have spoken to two solicitors and they do not know if it will go to court."
A spokesman for the Grampian police later confirmed the charges were "in connection with wearing a police uniform and equipment in a public place".
Stuart Kennedy, 24, was waiting to perform in Aberdeen when two female officers spoke to him. He said he was a stripper. They saw his act, then arrested him. His props were confiscated and he was charged with the impersonation offence and carrying an offensive weapon. He said: “It’s a good thing they don’t film The Bill in Aberdeen.”
