The moment armed police storm Call of Duty video game studio ('defended' by one of its characters) after employee pushes silent alarm

Armed police stormed a video game developer's studio on Thursday in scenes that resembled one of the maker's games rather than a Los Angeles office.

Robotoki founder Robert Bowling was the only person on the premises and was briefly detained by officers until they could verify that he was not a burglar.

But the former Call of Duty spokesman then tweeted that he blamed the life-size statue of the game's character Simon 'Ghost' Riley that stands in the studio window with a fake assault rifle in hand.
