When filming a realistic violent music video out in public, it's probably best to tell the authorities first, Fox News reported.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department received a call about a suspected kidnapping on Wednesday, which they posted on their Facebook page on Friday night.
Police said a driver was traveling on Highway 39 in the San Gabriel Mountains when they called the San Dimas station to report what they believed was a kidnapping in progress. The witness saw two men pointing a gun at another who was tied and immobilized with duct tape near a black BMW.
Deputies were called to the scene and conducted a “high risk” traffic stop on the vehicle, according to a written statement. Police detained three men during the investigation and determined they were just filming a music video. The only problem was they were using a real firearm.
