The mannequin challenge like so many challenges before it has gone viral. Everyone is doing it! But this week the mannequin challenge resulted in the arrest of a couple of challengees who posted a video of fake gunfight. The video, which was posted and reposted thousands of times, ultimately found the way into the hands of the local sheriff's office who wondered if all the 19 weapons shown were possessed legally. After executing the warrant the police officers found more than just some illegal weapons and arrested Terry Brown and Kenneth Fennell White on charges ranging from being a felon in possession of a firearm to possession of drug paraphernalia. This particular incident happened in Alabama, but the same charges exist here in Arizona. So, the next time you think about participating in the mannequin challenge remember who can view that trending feed and check out the laws section to be sure you don't become the nightly news.
