They don't just look like dummies! Armed 'gang' are arrested after police spot them posing with their terrifying cache of weapons in mannequin challenge video

First they were captured on camera, then they were captured by cops. Two men were arrested in Huntsville, Alabama at 5am Tuesday after police were sent a gunfight-themed mannequin challenge video that was posted on Facebook in November. The resulting investigation saw cops bringing in the men on gun and drug charges, as well as finding four guns, body armor, packs of marijuana and ammo, WHNT reported. The video, which shows 19 people - most with guns - posing in a freeze-framed 'shootout', was posted on the Facebook profile of Hailey Nichols on November 9. It has since received more than four million views. Spotted: White is seen here in the video, which was posted on Nov 9. Brown doesn't appear to be in the clip. Police investigated after being concerned about guns in the film Among those viewers were Madison County Sheriff's Office investigators, who were sent the video by a concerned citizen. 'You have a lot of people with firearms at one address,' Captain Mike Salomonsky said. 'And you have to ask yourself the question, "Why?" and the second question you have to ask yourself: Is it a public safety issue?' During the ensuing investigation, police say, they discovered that the house was being used to sell marijuana, and obtained a search warrant. The raid this morning saw the door being busted in and Kenneth White, 49, and Terry Brown, 23, being arrested. There were four others inside, including kids, cops said. Items recovered included two handguns, an assault rifle, an older single-barrel shotgun, an attack vest, multiple packs of marijuana, ammunition, magazines for the assault rifle and a computer.
