In effort to make it into music video, South Brunswick man throws egg at cop

    Perhaps at the top of list for how not to get a cop’s attention: throw an egg at him.

    But desperate times call for desperate measures and Paul Taeffner really wanted to be in the Beyonce music video being shot in South Brunswick, N.J.


    South Brunswick Patch reports the 23-year-old returned to the video set three separate times after being booted by security. On his final try, Taeffner allegedly threw an egg at an officer on the set. He fled on foot, but was caught and arrested.
