  • British Judge Sara Dodd sentenced a man named Abdulah Husseni to nine months in prison for theft and fraud Thursday, the AP reports. Husseni caused a stir online last October after police posted grainy surveillance footage of him carrying what turned out to be stolen beer from a British restaurant, and social media commenters immediately noticed how much he looked like Friends actor David Schwimmer. The actor himself joined in, tweeting “Officers, I swear it wasn’t me.” Husseni was convicted of one count of theft and four counts of fraud by false representation for using a stolen bank card to make or attempt to make fraudulent purchases in 2018.
