Film Students Cited For Causing 'Panic,' Police Say
A real-looking gun was used on set in Ardmore, according to police.
Four men from a Philadelphia film school were cited for disorderly conduct after filming a scene in Ardmore on Friday, Lower Merion police said at a Monday briefing.
A woman reported to police that she saw a white man point a gun at two other men that day in the area of School House Lane and Wister Road in Ardmore, police said.
Police later found out that the men—a 27-year-old man from Wynnewood, a 24-year-old man from Aldan, a 23-year-old man from Secane and a 45-year-old man from Upper Darby—were filming a project for school.
They showed police a plastic model 9 mm Beretta, which looked real, according to police. They were cited for “causing a disturbance and panic in the neighborhood,” the report states.
