Police in Crawfordsville, Ind. shoot at actor playing bank robber

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have released body camera video after an officer fired his weapon at an actor posing as a bank robber last week. 

A Crawfordsville, Indiana officer shot at the actor, who was wearing a mask and carrying a prop gun. The shot missed, and no one was injured.

Police say they believed they were responding to a crime at the Backstep Brewing Company.

The actor, James Duff, was ordered to the ground and handcuffed. He was released once authorities were able to verify his story.

"I was pretty much kind of shooken up, you know? It was just -- wow!"

Police say neither the film production company nor the bar notified them or nearby businesses that a movie was being filmed.
