QUICK TAKES

Reality bites or, in this case, stabs

January 07, 2003|From Reuters

A cameraman working on a new British reality TV show produced by Guy Ritchie was stabbed while filming a stunt designed to trap would-be car thieves. The cameraman was working on a series called "Swag," which uses hidden cameras to film people being tempted into illegal acts, Channel Five said.

The incident, which came to light Monday, happened before Christmas when an expensive car was left unlocked in a rundown area of London. A man who had just broken into the car stabbed the cameraman in the leg with a screwdriver after he spotted him filming the scene. The person was apprehended and will appear in court next week.
