NY Post — Two Alabama men were arrested Tuesday after a gun-wielding Mannequin Challenge went viral, authorities said.
Kenneth Fennel White, 49, and Terry Brown, 23, were busted after the duo was spotted in the heavily armed video, WHNT reported.
The clip, which has nearly five million views on Facebook, shows what appears to be a frozen drive-by shooting. More than a dozen people pose in various positions while hoisting handguns as music blasts in the background.
Once social media got hold of the video, Madison County Sheriff’s investigators received a warrant and searched the property.
“You have a lot of people with firearms at one address,” Capt. Mike Salmonsky said of the video, which was posted in November. “And you have to ask yourself the question, ‘Why?’”
Once they arrived, cops seized two handguns, an assault rifle, a shotgun, along with multiple rounds of ammunition.
Cops charged White, a convicted felon, with first-degree possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a violent felon.
Authorities also charged Brown with possession of drug paraphernalia, loitering and promoting prison contraband.
What the hell was THAT?
I don’t think there were this many guns in all of the six seasons of The Sopranos.
There are about fifty guns in this video and only two people were arrested?
Also, if you’re already a convicted felon this might not the smartest thing to do with your afternoon. When you post things online other people can see it and the police also have access to the internet.
I do give these people credit for coordination and not accidentally killing each other.
Luckily none of the guns went off, but something was killed here and that is the Mannequin Challenge itself.
