J.D. Williams who starred as Bodie from 2002 to 2008 on popular HBO series “The Wire” says he often gets stopped and frisked because he’s so recognizable:
You see, it’s a double-edged sword because I might get recognized, but they’re not sure where they know me from. So a lot of times, an officer might think that he’s arrested me before, but usually by the time that they walk up on me, it comes to them. They’re like, “Oh, I thought …” So, it kind of gets me noticed because they’re not sure, and … a little time goes by and they finally realize who I am.
