Beware pulling your MP3 player from your pocket while walking to the bus stop in Staffordshire. A man by the name of Darren Nixon was listening to tunes on his Philips MP3 player when a person in the vicinity mistook the player for a handgun.

The bystander called the cops, who followed the gent on CCTV until he got off the bus. The police then stopped him at gun point and took him to jail for questioning. According to Nixon the arrest happened in his neighborhood and is a stain on his character.

Nixon says he didn’t even get a proper apology from the police. "I was really shocked when I saw the guns. They were pointing them right at me. It was a pretty scary experience. I had no idea what was going on."
