    Report of gun turns out to be Blackberry

    Advertisement



    Helena law enforcement stormed into a building at Carroll College Thursday afternoon responding to a report of a man with a gun but the incident turned out to be nothing more than a scare.

    What was thought to be a handgun ended up being a Blackberry wireless handheld device.

    At least 16 officers from the Helena Police Department, the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the Montana Highway Patrol responded to the call, which came in at 1:35 p.m., according to Helena Police Lt. Roger Johnson.

    An employee in the student union building reported seeing a dark-haired man putting a handgun into his pocket while walking into the building.

    Responding officers, both uniformed and plainclothed, began “a very aggressive response prepared for someone with bad intentions,” Johnson said.

    People in the immediate area were evacuated and authorities prepared to use the reverse 911 system to call all of the phones on the college campus. The system was ready to go, but no calls were made.

    If it was a pearl I could totally see it. All you see is a thin silver bottom similar to the bottom of the grip on a small revolver or tiny semi automatic....totally possible.

    Heheheh... Funny.
    My tone when I receive texts is the sound of a gun cocking, needless to say I get questionable looks when I receive texts, maybe I should change it back to sonar...

    Isn't Foxy Brown serving time for assulting someone with a BlackBerry?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Not 100% sure on her actually doing time, but apparently she did chuck it at somebody. Personally I wouldn't waste my Blackberry on someone who p'd me off. A Nokia, Motorola or even a Samsung. But not a BB.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ that's what I love about BBs. They're stylish, they have a great deal of functionality, and they can even hold there own in a street fight!
