A Montana family watching The Walking Dead on Sunday unexpectedly found themselves at the center of a real-life drama. Police say a neighbor heard "screaming from a house about someone having a gun" and called 911. Minutes later, officers surrounded the Great Falls home with weapons drawn, per KRTV. They saw "flashing lights" and heard "loud talking," evidently coming from two open windows, before realizing that the inhabitants were only watching some zombie-fighting action, per the Great Falls Tribune. "We had a whole bunch of guys on that one," one officer admits. (More weird crimes stories.)
