18-year-old Keithan Manuel walked into a Dallas, Texas police station Saturday evening and demanded a dispatcher to hand over money.
Now Keithan is saying it was all just a joke.
Police said Manuel came into headquarters with a white towel covering his hands, approached dispatcher Patrice Hughey, and told her to give him the station’s money, according to CBSDFW.
Records then allege Manuel changed his request, asking if there were any warrants against him. As Hughey checked, Manuel reportedly said he had a gun. Hughey called for officers immediately, who then took Manuel down at gunpoint.
