David Schwimmer is a regular Sherlock Holmes

When you think of David Schwimmer, what do you think of? Most likely Ross Gellar, his character on Friends, comes to mind. But guess what! He’s also a super good crime solver and recently helped the NYPD solve a stabbing case! Whaaaat?

From the New York Post:

“Friends” star David Schwimmer invited cops into his East Village townhouse on Monday for a special screening — a video of an early-morning drunken fight among three men, police sources said.

The brawl had broken out at around 5:40 a.m. in a first-floor apartment in a building on East Sixth Street that adjoins the actor’s home. It spilled into the hallway before the men smashed through a glass lobby door.

Afterward, a 26-year-old john was taken to Bellevue Hospital with stab wounds to the face. His transvestite prostitute ran off, and a third combatant was arrested.

Robert Rainey, 21, of Newark was charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and robbery, the sources said.

Witnesses heard the older man shout, “He sliced me up!”

Police had only the two men’s accounts of who did what to whom — until they noticed a security camera on Schwimmer’s property, the sources said.

He showed them the video, and they left with a tape that might be used in court.

I seriously love this whole story – David Schwimmer helping fight crime in the big city? That’s a show in and of itself – and obviously it’d be way better than Joey. Plus, I think we know THIS little tidbit is false now:
