YOU WANT SUM? Wealdstone Raider flees police officers then gets pinned up against wall

The famous Wealdstone Raider can be seen in a viral video as flees himself from police officers and then gets pinned up against a wall.

Yes, in new footage released overnight, the most famous non league supporter of National League side Wealdstone has been spotted trying to flee police.

A 45-second clip shows him running away towards a London Underground tube station, only to then get eventually caught and squished up against a wall.

It is unknown why and what he was ‘nicked’ for, but it’s far to say he’s got another famous video to add to his collection, take a look at it below…

Gordon Hill, better known as The Wealdstone Raider, is an English builder who later gained prominence as an Internet meme.

He gained attention due to a humorous phone footage of him heckling opposing supporters of Whitehawk FC at a football match in March 2013, which ultimately ended in a 1โ€“1 draw, with phrases such as “You want some? I’ll give it ya” and “You’ve got no fans”. However, the video did not reach its peak in popularity until December 2014.

An online article by BBC News included The Wealdstone Raider in the ‘top memes and viral videos’ of December 2014. The nickname “Wealdstone Raider” came from the title of the original video uploaded by YouTube user dazman21.

Coincidentally, Hill claimed his brother had the nickname of “Raider” ten years prior to the upload.

In 2015, he was out and about in Manchester one day and was pictured alongside police community support officer Dan at Piccadilly Gardenโ€™s police pod.

GMPโ€™s city centre team tweeted the image alongside a joke about the state of the area, which has been widely criticised for falling into disrepair, reports the MEN.

The tweet to the account read: โ€œPotential trouble-maker in Piccadilly Gardens – the โ€˜Wealdstone Raiderโ€™.

“He didnโ€™t think much of the Gardens either.โ€

In 2016, he was reportedly involved in an incident as police were called to the then-National League South side’s meeting with Whitehawk.

The ‘Raider’ allegedly had to be restrained by security and police were called to the scene to calm the situation at the Enclosed Ground.

However, a source told the Mirror: “He (the Raider) was hit from behind – if that happened to you you wouldn’t be happy. It’s just been blown out of proportion.

“He also got another whack after the game.”

In April 2017, another video was uploaded of Hill having an altercation outside of a Wetherspoons pub with two doormen, and it appeared Hill was in a drunken state. These videos have attracted some viewership, though they are not as widely circulated or known about as the 2013 original.

Hill as a figure has been used as the face of various T-shirts and banners at public events such as football matches, one of which was spotted at a match between PEC Zwolle and ADO Den Haag in The Netherlands.

For the majority of Hill’s childhood and adolescence, he was treated by Great Ormond Street Hospital for toxoplasmosis. Of recent, Hill has since showed his gratitude to the hospital by donating the royalties from his song “Got No Fans” to them, among other charities.

Hill has already raised ยฃ500,000 for charity,including by charging fans ยฃ2 for a photo with him, and through the promotion of his charity single. Hill has an agent who takes bookings for him to appear at nightclubs and events. He has also been spotted on some luxury holidays.

He has also got over 100,000 followers on social media, released some music, done a lot of charity work, and built a reputation for light-heartedly insulting celebrities comically using his catchphrases, including Piers Morgan and Tyson Fury.

The media attention of which Hill has gained from the viral video and his charity single has led to an array of television appearances and interviews.

In addition, stock footage of the Raider has been used by various filmmakers for several YouTube mash-up videos, as well as for the dubbing of a number of popular television programmes and films, including Lord Sugar’s The Apprentice and the Academy Award-winning blockbuster, Oliver!.

He has also been on Channel 4’s Rude Tube, BT Sport’s Matchday Live with Fletch and Sav and ITV’s Britain Sees Red: Caught on Camera.
