A man was caught green-handed on live TV, running from a pot farm with a leafy green plant.

The perfectly hilarious moment was caught in the background of a report by British reporter Cameron Tucker for local news channel KMTV. He was giving a live report from a village in Kent, England, about a cannabis farm that had been busted. And right on cue, an unknown man stumbled around a corner carrying a potted plant.

Upon seeing the news crew, he immediately began running away while still carrying the weedy looking greenery. The incident was so perfectly timed that it looked like a clip from Reno 911! Tucker, the reporter, insisted the footage was as genuine as the terror on the young man’s face as he dashed off with the mysterious plant.
