Band singer nab for wearing police uniform -- no this is not Village People!

It would never happen to the lead singer of the Village People, but Sydney band member Jake Stone will think twice before wearing a police uniform on stage again.

Stone, 25, was dragged off stage and arrested mid-gig for wearing a police shirt as part of his act during a performance at Sydney's Metro Theatre. The frontman of funk, hip-hop band Blue Juice was then charged with impersonating a police officer.

But the bizarre incident has ended with a magistrate dismissing the case in the Downing Centre Local Court.

Not only was the charge against him thrown out, Stone was awarded $800 costs after Deputy Chief Magistrate Helen Syme found there was no case to answer.
