Cops called to robbery -- discover it's a movie

Police officers arrived at the scene of a reported armed robbery, only to discover the 'crime' was actually a shoot for an upcoming movie.

Cops had been called out when a passerby saw what they thought was an armed robbery at a grocery store in New York.

But when the SEVEN police cars arrived and 15 officers burst into the store, they discovered they weren't needed.

That's because the weapon which had been seen was a prop and the person waving it at staff was an actor in a independent movie.

Police say the director had forgotten to notify them he was filming a scene involving a firearm… given how close his actors came to being shot, we don't think he will make that mistake again.
Director Fred Carpenter said: "I was supposed to tell the local police precinct what we were doing. All of a sudden I'm directing and 15 police officers come in."

"For a moment I'm thinking it's part of the movie and then I said, wait a minute, I wrote the movie and this wasn't in the film. And it was like, insanity."
