Lee Nelson caught by Fake Officer left and unsuspecting PCSO right

Funny man Lee Nelson attempted to steal his own DVD from HMV on Oxford Street on Wednesday night during a signing but it didn’t quite go to plan.

Lee Nelson played by actor Simon Brodkin, 35, thought he had the perfect publicity stunt with a fake police officer (played by another actor) who would chase him out of the store with the stolen DVD.

But an unsuspecting Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) saw the incident, and not realising it was a stunt, weighed in to assist the fake officer in wrestling the actor to the ground for an arrest.


Eventually all was explained when the actor, his crew and store managers managed to convince the PCSO that Lee Nelson was not actually stealing the DVD.
