(Newser) – UK police say they've identified the Ross Geller lookalike wanted for an alleged theft from a Blackpool restaurant in September. David Schwimmer's alibi must've proved solid as Lancaster Police on Tuesday announced the arrest of a 36-year-old man in Southall, west London, per the BBC. "Thank you for the support, especially @DavidSchwimmer," police added. While maintaining his innocence, the Friends actor mimicked the thief seen on CCTV footage in a video posted to Twitter. Still, some think police have the wrong man. "#FreeRuss," one Twitter user quips. (Police joked about the case, too.)
