(Newser) – Sacha Baron Cohen caused a scene at a Milan fashion show today when he got up on the catwalk and danced violently before being hauled off, ANSA reports. Cohen—stalking the Italian city’s fashion week as he works on a film in which he plays gay fashion reporter Bruno—was turned over to police but released later without charge.

“Bruno” has been quite the fashion menace this week: Couture establishments have their antennae up for Cohen’s mischief after he and his crew snuck into a different designer’s show—despite Cohen being dressed in full-body Velcro—two days ago.
