PHOENIX - An April 9 trial date has been set for a man who's accused of sending his nephew into a street with a fake grenade launcher as he filmed the masked teen pointing the fake weapon at passing cars.
Michael David Turley has pleaded not guilty to falsely perpetuating a terrorism act for the July 28 incident in northwest Phoenix.
Police who had responded to calls about the fake grenade launcher were told that the two were filming a movie and took down their names and left.
But Turley was later arrested after police interviewed people who called emergency services and later saw the video posted on YouTube.
A narrator in the video says he wanted to see how long it took authorities to respond.
