On August 4, Toronto police operations sent out a tweet about a man seen with a gun at the intersection of Grange and Augusta Avenues, as a heads up to anyone in the area. That's completely standard.

What wasn't standard was what the man with the gun turned out to be, which was a statue of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator. He did say he'd be back, right?

The City News was quick to the scene, where they found the movie prop in a dumpster and promptly rescued it.

BECAUSE THAT'S NO WAY TO TREAT (FAKE) ARNOLD!

This isn't the first time a prop with a gun has scared someone into calling the police: fake Duane "The Rock" Johnson caused a similar reaction in a man whose roommate pranked him with a cardboard cutout.

It can't hurt to be too safe, right? It also can't hurt to extend kudos to the brave men and women in uniforms who take down these movie props before they can go all sequel on us.
