(Newser) – Several teenage dancers caused a serious security scare in the Lincoln Tunnel yesterday—when they got out of their cars and ran for the exit. The troupe, Club Envy, was scheduled to dance for BET's 106 & Park, but, at the end of a long drive from Florida, was stuck in rush-hour traffic in the tunnel. They decided to make a run for it—costumed in full camouflage, reports the New York Post.

The group had almost reached the exit when they were confronted by police. "They drew their guns on us at first," says the group's 24-year-old manager. It turns out their time-saving strategy didn't work—they spent the rest of the evening being questioned by police. Click here for more at AOL News.
