Dudes Set The Bar For The Mannequin Challenge After Theirs Gets Them Arrested For Gun And Drug Possession
A gun-wielding Mannequin Challenge video led to the arrest of two men and the seizure of several firearms and marijuana at a north Alabama home.
The video, which shows several people in still poses holding guns, led Madison County Sheriff’s investigators to serve a search warrant at 5012 Powell Drive N.W. in Huntsville around 5 a.m., said Capt. Mike Salomonsky.
Those arrested are Kenneth Fennell White, 49, and Terry Brown, 23.
White is charged with first-degree possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a violent felon. He is being held in the Madison County Jail with bail set at $30,000.
Brown is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and loitering. Once he was taken to the jail, authorities found marijuana in his possession and added a charge of promoting prison contraband. His bail is set at $3,800.
Two handguns, an assault rifle and a shotgun, along with several rounds of ammunition and magazines were seized at the home, Salomonsky said.
Investigators also discovered several bags of marijuana that were packaged for resale along with scales and a device used for grinding the drug.
Well well well, grampa welcome to 2016: where a cool internet trend can result in a month-long investigation that leads to a drug bust and multiple arrests. Thanks for fighting in Vietnam for us! But, regardless of these dudes tacking on a couple felonies to their records, they truly have set the bar. For those considering giving the hashtag mannequin challenge a try, please don’t even attempt it if you on you isn’t going to risk your freedom for it. You’re playing with the big boys now. Enough pussy shit.
