Heavily-Armed Cops Turn Up To GTA V Launch StuntS

A stunt at a game store in France went pear-shaped earlier in the week when staff dressed like gangsters for the GTA V launch, and did such a good job a police armed response team showed up.

The staff, from a Micromania store in Montargis, not only dressed the part, but also sported replica handguns.

Which is likely the catalyst for concerned onlookers calling the cops, after which 15 officers with submachine guns rushed to the store, to find two very frightened employees.

Whoops.
