HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: How is it some people just have a nose for getting into trouble?
Metta World Peace awoke this week to the LAPD surrounding his home. They'd received a tip that there was gun-play on World Peace's property. They police believed the guns were real and came out in full force.
Lucky for everyone involved this was simply a scene from a movie Artest Media Group was shooting for a "life on the streets" style movie.
The Los Angeles Times reported caught up with MWP still in his pajamas who had this to say,
"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 a brief conversation with the police, World Peace put on his Cookie Monster pajamas and accompanied them outside.
World Peace was shocked by what he saw.
"Like 20 cops' cars are outside, like 10 more police," he 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."
World Peace said that once the police realized that the suspects were actors, and that their guns were BB guns, the mood lightened.
You can always rely on MWP to be surrounded by a whirlwind of drama, entertainment and violence, even if it's just pretend.
