Four Australian filmmakers faced a court appearance Thursday after they forgot to tell police that they were shooting a gunfight scene in a Melbourne street, dpa reported.
Fearful residents called in with reports of men with guns and the police despatched a heavily armed squad, which cordoned off the area.
A police spokesman said the four had been charged with causing a public nuisance over Wednesday's incident.
"A person came into Carlton police station pretty distressed, saying they had seen a guy with a gun," the spokesman said. "All they said was that they saw the gun being held to someone's head."
