Robert Bowling's development studio Robotoki was raided by armed police last Thursday after an unnamed employee pushed the company's panic alarm.

But hilariously, the police response "ended in a tense showdown with a life-sized statue of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's Simon 'Ghost' Riley," which the LAPD allegedly mistook for a gunman.

"Our studio is equipped with a 'panic' alarm in case of an armed threat, which was installed yesterday," Bowling told Polygon. "One of our designers, who shall not be shamed, pressed it on his way out because apparently when boys find buttons that they are unsure of, their first instinct is to push it."

After taking Bowling into temporary custody and sweeping the building, the police later emerged "laughing" at the incident.

Robotoki was not fined for the incident, and police "chalked it up as a mistake, a miscommunication or misdirected prank".

And what's Ghost Riley got to say about all this? Not a very good ghost of the LAPD seen him.
