A man claiming to be rocker Ozzy Osbourne held up a convenience store in Vancouver, Washington on Christmas Eve (24Dec07). The raider, dressed exactly like the former Black Sabbath star, threatened a store assistant with a handgun after telling him to hand over cash to the Prince of Darkness, Osbourne's nickname. However, the faux-Ozzy was disturbed by shoppers, allowing the clerk to alert the emergency services. According to local reports, paramedics arrived on the scene and transported the man to a nearby hospital.
