Watch as This Fake Olympic Torchbearer Gets Escorted Out of Piccadilly Circus by Police

By Sam Gibbs on at

It seems LOCOG and the rozzers don't take too kindly to people gatecrashing the Olympic torch relay, even if it is all in good jest. Richard DeDemenici has been travelling the country as a spoof torchbearer, but this time he went too far.

At one point I thought the van chasing him was going to pull up beside him and bundle him into the back, CIA/kidnapping-style. I'm not really sure what would posses you to spend your time travelling the country at your own expense, running slightly ahead of the Olympic relay. Anyway, you can watch some of DeDemenici's previous exploits below, but none are as funny as that.
