False Alarm of the Day: LAPD Surrounds a Statue of Ghost from Call of Duty
Los Angeles Police Department officers found themselves in a rather awkward situation at the Robotoki video game developer studio after an employee accidentally hit their security system’s “armed threat” panic button. The office just happened to have a life-sized statue of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 character Simon “Ghost” Riley on display by the entrance, armed with a menacing-looking mock assault rifle. When police arrived on the scene and noticed the gun-wielding figure, they immediately stormed the building in a tense 15-minute standoff. After realizing the effigy was not a threat, the police reportedly left the building while laughing at the absurd incident.
