Watching too many action movies has its consequences. Police in Zurich began a manhunt to track down the victim of an armed kidnapping only to discover it was a re-enactment of a scene from a movie.
Passers-by reportedly called the police after seeing a man pulled into a car. After a widespread search, Swiss authorities found the car and two Airsoft guns, which they said looked very similar to real weapons, Reuters reported.
The police arrested the two occupants of the stolen car, who turned out to be a 20-year old Swiss man and a 22-year old Spaniard. During questioning the pair owned up to the prank, saying it was from a movie.
The two men have been released but are still facing charges for illegally carrying weapons.
