Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni Fight Off a Thief — and Nearly Kiss — at 2022 Emmys

Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni had to use their skills as detectives in a strange place.

On Monday, the two Law & Order: Special Victims Unit stars went to Los Angeles's Microsoft Theater for the 74th annual Emmy Awards.

Everything was going well until someone wearing all black stole an Emmy from backstage.

Hargitay and Meloni were on the case, which was good news for the Television Academy.

The dynamic duo went on an epic police chase and caught the thief using their TV detective skills.

They then went on stage to give the award for lead actor in a comedy series.
