Trial set for Phoenix man in grenade-launcher hoax

PHOENIX -- An April 9 trial date has been set for a man who's accused of sending his nephew into a street with a fake grenade launcher as he filmed the masked teen pointing it at passing cars.

Michael David Turley has pleaded not guilty to falsely perpetuating a terrorism act for the July 28 incident in northwest Phoenix.

Police who had responded to calls about the fake grenade launcher were told that the two were filming a movie and took down their names and left.

But Turley was later arrested after police interviewed people who called emergency services and later saw the video posted on YouTube.

A narrator in the video said he wanted to see how long it took authorities to respond.
