PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say they’ve arrested a man after he reportedly dressed a teenage relative in a sheet and sent him into a street to aim a fake rocket-propelled grenade launcher at passing cars.
Police spokesman officer James Holmes says 39-year-old Michael Turley was arrested Monday on charges of knowingly giving a false impression of a terrorist act, endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Holmes tells KTVK-TV Turley filmed the teen pointing the fake grenade launcher at passing cars on July 28.
Responding police didn’t make any arrests after Turley told them he was making a movie.
Police made the arrest after the self-described filmmaker reportedly posted a video on You Tube that said he was testing how fast Phoenix police responded to the mock terrorist.
