[Video] LAPD Confronts Heavily Armed…Call of Duty Statue?
This is a somewhat amusing story we just had to share. According to CBS, The LAPD briefly confronted a Call of Duty statue during a raid which was in response to a panic alarm at an LA area video game company.
The newly installed panic alarm button was apparently pushed by 2 employees who didn’t know what it would do. A very quick, armed police response is what entailed.
The owner of the firm was the only one still in the building when police arrived, although police initially thought there was a man armed with an AR-15 style rifle surveying traffic below the building.
The armed man turned out to be a life size statue of “Ghost” from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Police briefly paused and investigated the statue with weapons drawn.
The panic button call was obviously a false alarm. Police normally charge property owners for responding to false alarms, but say the game company will be let off with a warning this time.
