"Wait, are those cameras rolling?"

St. Louis' KTVI-TV (Channel 2) got a special shoutout from comedian Jimmy Kimmel this week, thanks to a surprised cop's not-so-quick thinking.

Reporter Anthony Kiekow was giving a live update about a fire at an assisted-living facility in Herculaneum, about 30 miles south of St. Louis, when a police officer behind him realized he might be on camera and nervously scooched himself off camera.

Kimmel featured the video on the Behind the News segment of his late night show Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"He was supposed to be working undercover," Kimmel tells his applauding audience. "His invisibility cloak malfunctioned."
