NEW CUMBERLAND, W.Va. – Guns, fatigues, and a violent crime: A rapper used a West Virginia courtroom to film his vigilante-themed music video, and that has disturbed one local official.
The Weirton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1TB9EVI) reports that Hancock County Commissioner Jeff Davis was not happy the courtroom was used by local rapper Mini Thin. Davis wants fellow commissioners to adopt rules to make sure such a scenario isn't repeated.
Jason Mallas of Weirton, or Mini Thin, says he used the Circuit Court chambers to film the video on June 12.
Davis says county officials were unaware of the shoot.
Mallas says the courtroom was scheduled through a judge's office.
An actress wore fatigues during the four-hour shoot, and fake guns were used to depict a story about the rescue of a rape victim.
