Phoenix Police arrested Michael D. Turley Monday after he allegedly dressed his teenage relative in a sheet, armed him with a fake rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and sent him to create a terrorist hoax to prompt police response.

He was not arrested for the video per se , it was more for dressing a kid up like a middle easterner with a rocket launcher.
Police arrested Michael Turley, 39, Monday after a nearly two-month investigation. The filmmaker faces charges of knowingly giving a false impression of a terrorist act, endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of his minor nephew, 16.
"They told us they were just making a movie," Phoenix Police Department spokesman James Holmes said, adding that there was no arrest that day.
"We deemed it a pretty dumb action but we didn't know what their real intent was, so we initiated an investigation," Holmes said.
Turley apparently posted the video on YouTube two days after filming. He called it "Dark Knight Shooting Response, Rocket Launcher Police Test."
