On Sunday a pair of freaking nutjobs with a death wish walked into a Dearborn, Michigan police station with guns and a camera (you know, to stream it on Facebook Live) because they were unhappy that they were pulled over earlier in the day.
The confrontation was sparked after cops were called in to investigate the suspicious men at a local shopping district, where they were sitting in their car wearing tactical masks and vests. However, before the police could arrive, the two men took off. Their vehicle was eventually pulled over three miles away by a sergeant who investigated, but allowed them to leave after he failed to locate any guns.
The two men, pissed off about being questioned, drove to a nearby police station to stage a confrontation that was certain to get them in far more trouble. One was identified as 24-year-old James Baker, who was carrying two firearms when he entered the station. The other man, 40-year-old Brandon Vreeland, was armed with a camera and tripod. According to FOX 2 Detroit, one of the men can be heard on the now-viral video saying, "We felt a little afraid for our lives when we were pulled over, so we wanted to prove a point." Shortly afterward, police can be heard ordering them to the ground. After initially resisting the order, they were eventually taken into custody.
You can watch the totally bonkers actions of the two men in the
pretty intense video below:
As FOX 2 also reported, after they were apprehended the two men were then found to be carrying a portable arsenal into the station:
"Dearborn police seized the loaded AP-14, a rifle magazine containing 47 7.62 rounds, a loaded Glock 19 handgun with four magazines that held 66 rounds, as well as their ballistics vests and body armor.
"Additionally the police seized an AK-47 style rifle and an AR-15 rifle."
To drive home just how stupid their little stunt was, even Open Carry Detroit contacted the police to condemn the duo's actions. As for their punishment, each man was free to leave after posting $1,500 bond. While the charges haven't been completed yet, they are currently facing three misdemeanors. Their court date is yet to be determined.
