Two men in Alabama were arrested after footage from a shootout-themed mannequin challenge led authorities to their location.
49-year-old Kenneth White and 23-year-old Terry Brown were detained after officials from the Madison County Sheriff's Office, the Huntsville Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives executed a warrant on the home in the video.
The video showed many people wielding several guns in a pose made to look like a shootout. Once the video went viral online, it was brought to the attention of the Criminal Investigation/Narcotics unit.
White, who has a criminal record, was charged with first-degree possession of marijuana and "certain persons forbidden to possess a firearm," a charge which forbids convicted felons from being gun owners.
Brown was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, loitering and promoting prison contraband.
"There are several persons in the video who may be convicted felons," Capt. Salomonsky told WHNT 19. "So, we're going to try to do some identification, work with the ATF and see if we can generate any charges out of that."
