Officer 'Flattered' After He Was Mistaken For a Stripper While Checking On 50th Birthday Party
An officer in England was mistaken for a stripper after he entered a social club.
A uniformed officer was left shocked - and a little flattered - when he was mistaken for a stripper by a group of women at an English social club, according to reports.
Police Community Support Officer Mike Ober was on foot patrol when he entered an open door at the club in Bradford-on-Avon, according to the BBC.
There, he was greeted by women celebrating a 50th birthday who “went wild with excitement” when they saw him, the BBC reported. They thought Ober was the male entertainment for the night.
Ober, who is in his mid-20s, told the BBC: "Someone shouted: 'Oh, are you the stripogram?'"
As he left the venue, the real stripper arrived.
"It's a matter of personal taste, but the uniforms aren't very flattering, so I guess [the mix-up] is flattering," he said.
A Police Community Support Officer is not the same as a regular cop. “They patrol a beat and interact with the public, while also offering assistance to police officers at crime scenes and major events,” according to a recruitment website.
