‘Nidge’ lies on the ground under arrest as members of the public look on during filming.

THIS is the dramatic moment when a vicious criminal finally gets nabbed by the long arm of the law.

Lying face down on the ground with his hands tied behind his back, he waits to be hauled off as a garda stands over him with his handgun drawn.

For Nidge, played by actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor, it's an indignant moment in the hugely successful series 'Love/Hate' which is now filming its fourth series.

The IFTA-award winner, along with his gang members Elmo (Laurence Kinlan) and Ado (Mark Dunne) are seen being chased by gardai along Dublin's streets before being hauled out of vehicles and arrested at gunpoint.

The gritty Irish crime drama was first broadcast in October 2010 and has since picked up a huge number of awards and accolades for its realistic portrayal of crime and gangland violence.

Production on the fourth season of the series is to continue until late April.

The series scooped a whole host of awards at the recent IFTA awards, including Best TV Actor for Tom Vaughan-Lawlor for his portrayal of Nidge.
