Police charge stripogram cop impersonator

Boys in Blue unimpressed by student's uniform

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

A 24-year-old stripogram has been charged with wearing police uniform and equipment in the street, the BBC reports.

Aberdeen uni genetics student Stuart Kennedy, who supplements his grant by getting his kit off for cash, was spotted by two real Boys in Blue in Aberdeen's Bon Accord Street on 17 March, while en route to a disrobing.

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 confirmed the charges were "in connection with wearing a police uniform and equipment in a public place".

Kennedy told BBC Scotland news website: "I was totally surprised. I do not believe this is in the public interest." ®
