Man Dressed as Stormtrooper Prompts Lockdown After Bystander Thinks His Prop Blaster is an “AK-47″

Really? What do you think?

A man who dresses as a stormtrooper from Star Wars and makes funny videos for his VINE account caused quite the uproar in Salina, KS when a bystander thought he was carrying an AK-47. Yep, because that Star Wars blaster prop looks just like an AK-47.

According to local media KSAL,

[Christopher Burns (aka Stormtrooper Sam)] tells KSAL News that he was a little surprised at the reaction, “Star Wars is such an iconic image, I was a little bit surprised that someone would see a Stormtrooper and fear when you know it’s been around since the 70′s,” he said.

Multiple police officers responded to the 100 Block of South 7th Street at around 1:00 in the afternoon Monday to the report of a possibly armed man.
