Top 8 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Cop Accidentally Shoots at Masked Actor

Other top surveillance videos of the week include a bus getting struck by a train, a disgruntled gas station attendant and more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

Here’s a little tip for all you aspiring filmmakers out there — never film without a permit.

That way, if you’re filming something like a robbery, you won’t have to worry about the real police showing up and mistaking you for a real criminal.

Because that’s exactly what happened recently in Indiana.

Watch the footage!

Bodycam footage shows a police officer approach the “suspect” who is wearing a mask and holding a (fake) gun.

The police officer fires a warning round (or did he just miss?) and tells the suspect to drop the gun. The suspect eventually says “we’re doing a movie” and an awkward pause ensues.

What started off as a mistake almost ended in tragedy. So let that be a lesson to all you future Steven Spielbergs out there, notify the local police if you are shooting a movie, especially if it involves armed robbery.

Also this week…

Surveillance footage from Brooklyn shows the moment two men attempted to abduct a 15-year old girl who was waiting for the bus.

According to ABC 7, the suspects have since been caught and arrested.

Make sure to check out these surveillance videos, plus, a disgruntled gas station attendant who takes matters into his own hands, a drunken encounter and more!
