An amateur filmmaker has been arrested after filming his nephew marching around a busy intersection dressed as a terrorist and pointing a fake rocket launcher at passing cars, in a hoax to test police response times.
Michael David Turley, 39, of Phoenix, Arizona, uploaded footage of the July 28 stunt on YouTube in which he explains how he wanted to test how long it took local police to react just days after the Batman shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
Police were bombarded with 911 calls from motorists who spotted the apparently armed 16-year-old on the street, and said they responded one minute after they first received reports.
However, the video, called 'Dark Knight Shooting Response, Rocket Launcher Police Test' allegedly shows the fake terrorist roaming around a busy intersection for 15 minutes.
Officers made no arrests on the day, claiming they were told they were making a movie.
'We deemed it a pretty dumb action but we didn't know what their real intent was, so we initiated an investigation,' Phoenix Police Department spokesman James Holmes told ABC News.
Authorities became aware of the video a few weeks after they were called to the scene. Read more and view the video here via Daily Mail
