'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Crew Member Finds Real Gun In Ballona Creek
A shot from 'Ballona Creek.'
A crew member on the set of Law & Order: Los Angeles -- filming on-location in Ballona Creek -- found a gun as he waded through some water. Big deal. Indeed, he thought it was a prop.
Nope. Real-deal, semiautomatic weapon, according to the Wall Street Journal. Executive producer Jill Danton explained how it went down:
Actors work in "Ballona Creek."
A camera operator "yelled, 'Look, that looks like a gun.' Oh, look, a fake gun' and he tosses it over the concrete ... "
An off-duty cop working on-set did a double take and ID'd the gun as a real pistol
