Looks like those reports of threats at the filming of an Apple+ tv series were vastly overblown

Baltimore Banner:

A police report shows that the initial report to police came secondhand from a location manager. The person, who is not identified by name, told an officer around 4:45 p.m. that at 6 a.m. people demanded $50,000 in order to film at the location, and that they pulled a gun.

“Once questioned what the gun looked like, [the location manager] retracted his original statement of seeing the gun and advised he did not see a gun but that one of the drivers [had] seen the gun,” the report says. The location manager also said they had “seen a large amount of marijuana.”


Using CCTV camera footage, police located a street vendor seen talking with a member of the production. He said he requested compensation from the production because he was not able to operate during filming. The statement makes no mention of a firearm.


Police have charged the street vendor, a 43-year-old man from Pikesville, with drug charges.
