Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A WAR­RANT has been is­sued for the ar­rest of a “looka­like” of Sch­wim­mer after he failed to at­tend court.

Ab­du­lah Husseni, 36, of Slough, Berk­shire, had been sum­monsed to ap­pear at Black­pool Mag­is­trates’ Court on Tues­day ac­cused of theft and fraud.

So­cial me­dia users pointed out the like­ness to Sch­wim­mer’s char­ac­ter Ross Geller in the pop­u­lar US sit­com when po­lice in Black­pool posted an im­age of a man leav­ing a restau­rant on Sep­tem­ber 20, car­ry­ing what ap­peared to be beer cans.

Sch­wim­mer then posted a video on Twit­ter of him car­ry­ing a tray of beer in a store with the cap­tion: “Of­fi­cers, I swear it wasn’t me. As you can see, I was in New York.” star David
