SWAT swarms bar after mic stand mistaken for gun (VIDEO)

Staff and patrons at Lulu’s Inn in Watkins, Colorado, got quite a scare Friday morning when SWAT was called in over what was mistaken for a gunman.

Apparently everyone exited the building and called the police, while the unsuspecting “gunman” remained inside. But it turned out that the man with a “gun” was actually a member of the live band who was supposed to perform there that day. In his hand, a mic stand, not a gun.

When authorities arrived, the man came out of the building with his hands up, as instructed, and no one was injured.
