Police surround Montana house, find family watching ‘The Walking Dead’

This image released by AMC shows Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in a scene from the season four premiere of "The Walking Dead."


Apparently it can be pretty dangerous to have the volume turned up too loud on your TV in Montana.

A family in Great Falls, Montana was watching the popular TV show The Walking Dead when their house was surrounded by a group of seven police officers responding to a 9-1-1 call, according to the Great Falls Tribune.

The call was from a neighbour who reported hearing “screaming from a house about someone having a gun,” according to Great Falls Police Department notes from the call.

When police arrived, they found a pair of adults and several children watching a loud television program, with a pair of open windows close to the TV.

One of the officers on scene, GFPD Sgt. Brian McGraw, told the paper that he found out later the family was watching The Walking Dead.

Great Falls is a city of almost 60,000 people located about 300 km south of Lethbridge, Alta.
