A mannequin challenge video in Alabama resulted in several arrests after it basically flagged down local and federal law enforcement right to their front door.
Mannequin challenges are meant to be fun and entertaining videos where people freeze in various poses while someone walks around and films them from different angles.
In this mannequin challenge, someone thought it would be good idea to re-enact a drive-by shooting, and get it all on camera.
Authorities from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the Huntsville Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were led to the front door of the residence and obtained enough probable cause to get a search warrant for the home.
They breached the home and encountered six people inside, including children. Authorities also pulled two handguns, one rifle, one single-barrel shotgun, multiple packs of marijuana, an attack vest, multiple magazines for the rifle, ammunition and a computer from the residence.
The investigation started after the video surfaced.
