(CS) Police in Wasserbillig late on Friday evening were called to the Moselle riverbank after a man wearing a bullet proof west and helmet was spotted in the area.

When they arrived at the scene around 11.40pm, police ordered the man to raise his hands and slowly lie down on the ground.

Upon closer inspection, however, the bullet proof vest turned out to be a home-made fake, with the helmet's pretend communication system made of wires taken from home electronics.

Police lectured the young man explaining that five loaded guns had just been pointed at him over his role-playing tomfoolery.

Apparently intimated, according to police, the man packed up his gear and returned home.
