Kick-Ass actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson and his wife, Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson, reportedly had their England home raided by a couple of cops Thursday evening.
According to reports, a neighbor called police after seeing a machine gun through a basement window of the couple’s home.
Thankfully the weapon was ruled out as a fluke, a deactivated M16 rife that was “certified and fully decommissioned”. A spokeswoman of the couple gave a statement to The Guardian in relation to the incident.
“We can confirm that early this morning police were called to the London home of Mr. and Mrs. Taylor-Johnson following a report of a firearm on the premises by a concerned passerby. The family were not present in the property at the time but the police gained entry via a key holder,” the spokeswoman stated.
“The firearm was located in Sam Taylor-Johnson’s basement studio and has been confirmed as a certified and fully decommissioned M16 assault rifle that was provided to Mrs. Taylor-Johnson by the international charity Peace One Day as part of an art project entitled ‘Peace One Day M16’.”
“The project, curated by Jake Chapman, consists of new works by some of the most celebrated names in contemporary art all of whom are transforming fully decommissioned M16 assault rifles.”
Thankfully for the couple, no charges or arrests were made.
Hopefully the duo rethinks the next time they decide to leave their props around the house.
