    Hollywood impersonators busted

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    LOS ANGELES -- The red and cuddly Sesame Street Muppet Elmo has learned a new lesson: 'H' is for handcuffs.

    A man dressed as the character was one of three impersonators arrested last week for allegedly harassing tourists for tips after posing for photos on Hollywood Boulevard. Booked with him were people impersonating superhero Mr. Incredible and the dark-hooded character from the horror movie "Scream."

    The impersonators said they were taken into custody at gunpoint, handcuffed and paraded on the Hollywood Walk of Fame before stunned tourists and other impersonators. They were charged with misdemeanor "aggressive begging," police said.
