“Law & Order” fans are trained to follow clues, and they made a big mistake about a character’s military uniform during Thursday’s episode of the popular crime show.

In the episode “Chain of Command”, Michael Bakkensen portrayed Sgt. Bryce Crawford, Hugh Dancy as Acting District Attorney Nolan Price, and Odelya Halevi as Assistant District Attorney Samantha Maroon.


Social media users noticed that the uniform didn’t fit the story as his character was supposed to be a sergeant major.

One user tweeted, “How can you have a guy in army uniform pretending he’s a sergeant first class and telling him he’s a sergeant major.” “Really? You want me to ignore this?
