The mannequin challenge has taken the world by storm, people all over the world have participated in the very popular freeze-in-place challenge. However, a recent viral video of the challenge, may have recently gotten a few people in trouble.
According to reports, a mannequin challenge video depicting a drive-by shooting led to two arrests in Alabama, this week. Apparently, the video surfaced in early November on Facebook, showing multiple men pointing guns at one another outside of an #Alabama home with music playing in the background.
Sources say, the video inclined officials to investigate further. They began gathering evidence against the 22 armed individuals involved; enough to secure a warrant.
The warrant was reportedly served around 5 a.m. on Tuesday, allowing officials to seize several guns, bullets and marijuana from inside the Alabama home. As a result, officials arrested and charged 49-year-old #KennethFennellWhite and 23-year-old #TerryBrown.
According to USA Today, White was charged with possession of a firearm by a violent felon and first-degree possession of marijuana, while Brown was charged with promoting prison contraband, loitering and drug paraphernalia possession.
The two may face additional charges, as well as the other individuals in the video. According to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office Captain, a few of the men in the video may be convicted felons, so, officials will continue to investigate until all parties are identified and charged.
