A visitor at Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area summoned police when he saw five men armed with assault rifles and pistols apparently getting ready to execute a sixth man, who was handcuffed, kneeling on the ground, and had two AK-47s pointed at his head. A video camera was mounted on a tripod nearby to record the grisly event.
Things are not always as they seem.
Quickly arriving on the scene, local police and a park ranger found a group of young men, aged 18 to 24, filming a movie without a permit.
The pistols were BB/pellet guns. The assault rifles, the camcorder, and presumably the handcuffs, were all real.
The guy who owned the two AK-47s was arrested and the rest were given citations for weapons and permit violations. The whole bunch got a stern lecture and some important additions to their “don’t do it again” list.
