Bullet-ridden Prop Car Causes Brief Philadelphia Scare
PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (AP) Police officers in downtown Philadelphia who came across a shot-up car with exposed wiring inside were about to the call the bomb squad when they found out it was a movie prop.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports police stopped Friday morning in the Old City section when they saw the car riddled with bullet holes and side windows shot out. They also saw wires running from the trunk into the dashboard.
The officers were ready to close the street and call the bomb squad when a security guard told them it was for a film.
The thriller "Safe," starring Jason Statham, wrapped Thursday night after shooting in the city in recent weeks.
