Film Crews Mistaken Twice in Detroit for Criminals

Saturday, 12 Dec 2009 05:46 PM

Detroit police have twice mistaken film crews shooting scenes involving weapons with criminals in recent months.

The Detroit News reports Saturday that in both cases the moviemakers hadn't obtained the proper permits from the city.

Four crew members from Detroit-based B.U.P. Films were in court Thursday after receiving tickets for possession and brandishing facsimile weapons during filming Nov. 5. A hearing was set for Feb. 18.

B.U.P. Films production assistant DeAndre King says the crew didn't think it needed a permit to film at a private home.

A Detroit police spokesman didn't immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press on Saturday. There was no listing for B.U.P. Films, and it didn't immediately return a message sent through the social networking Web site MySpace.com.
