As many fans know, ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ never fails to surprise us. In a shocking Twitter post (pun intended), television company, Wolf Entertainment, gives fans a peek behind the process of a special effect.

In the scene, viewers see officers chasing after a perp in the dark. However, they slow down after realizing the perp is running straight for a pair of low-hanging electrical wires. So, yes, the perp lights up like a flashlight before collapsing to the ground.

The caption reads, “Ouch! Our #OrganizedCrime SPFX team created the sparks and light on the day we shot this scene and then VFX added in even more to get the full effect!”

Ouch, indeed! A Twitter user shared a comment we’re sure many were probably thinking about the “Law & Order: Organized Crime” scene as well. “Well he got a shock he’s never gonna forget.”

Founded by Dick Wolf, Wolf Entertainment is the production company responsible for the two longest-running scripted franchises on television. Can you guess what those are? The winners are the “Law & Order” and “One Chicago” franchises!
