Rebel Wilson was left horrified when she witnessed two men in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) uniforms forcibly restraining ex-boyfriend Mickey Gooch and marching him out of a packed film industry event.
The Pitch Perfect star, 39, was at the Mammoth Film Festival for the weekend to support Mickey and his latest film Deported, and the incident occurred at a celebrity bowling tournament.
However, all was not as it seems as the ambush was part of an elaborate stunt pulled by practical joker Mickey on the event organisers, with the prank kept secret from everyone on his team, including Rebel.

As the bowling match drew to an end two men in ICE uniforms pushed Mickey to the floor, tie wrapped his wrists and frogmarched him out of the building to a waiting car.
Rebel, who was taken aback by the shocking scene, shouted out: 'Mickey, what is going on?' as he was restrained.
As the officers tried to take Mickey away, one of his team-mates, former pro basketball player Dennis Rodman, tried to obstruct the officers.
However, the sports star was told in no uncertain terms that they would arrest him also if he continued to get involved.

When the prank began, the ICE officers first tried to arrest another member of the bowling team, actor Matiano Di Vaio, who co-stars in Deported with Mickey.
The officers said Di Vaio was staying in the USA illegally as his visa had run out. Mickey tried to stop the officers taking Mariano away then he was restrained and taken away with Di Vaio.
The officers read both of them their rights as they led them away through the packed crowd at the Mammoth Rock N Bowl rink and bundled into a waiting car.
Rebel stood open-mouthed as the whole bizarre scenario played out in front of a packed 400 crowd at the bowling alley.
