Metta World Peace’s Home Invaded by Cops?!
“Like 20 cops’ cars are outside, like 10 more police,” Artest said. “My brother had his hands behind his back and [there were] helicopters. The whole Wilshire [Blvd.] was shut down. The street shut down. No cars nowhere.”
“I’m in my underwear and my son says, ‘Hey dad, there’s police at the door,'” World Peace said in an interview with The Times after the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics on Wednesday evening. “So I jump out, I’m nervous. I see these police with rifles and scopes.
“I’m like, ‘What happened?’ I don’t know what’s going on at this point. ‘What happened, what happened?’ And then the police was like, ‘The building is being taken over by guys downstairs.'”
“At first when I seen the police, I was like, ‘What the hell is going on?”’ World Peace said. “I just got finished watching ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ or whatever that movie is. I’m like, ‘I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming. Is there a terrorist in the building? Do y’all need my help?'”
After the cops realized the guns were just movie props, their mood lightened. “The police was laughing,” he said. “It was funny but it was irresponsible on the actors’ part because you do the scene and that’s it. They didn’t understand that after you do the scene, you put the stuff away.” – foxsports
LA Lakers’ Metta World Peace’s home was invaded by police on early Tuesday morning?! They mistook Artest’s acting entourage, who were carrying prop guns and walking around outside, as criminals bearing arms on his property! World Peace and his production company, Artest Media Group, were working on a film about life on the streets! His nephew, an actor in the movie, and a couple of other actors were rehearsing lines and toting a fake shotgun and two fake 9mm’s as props! They then proceeded to play with the prop guns out front of World Peaces’ westside condo, when the cops were called around midnight! The actors and director were immediately cuffed, and World Peace’s younger brother Isaiah was even cuffed later after running downstairs to see what the ruckus was all about and couldn’t show identification! World Peace ran to the door in his cookie monster pajamas, and told the cops it was just a movie!
