Gun tattoo prompts SWAT response

Michael Smith, stands beside a Somerset County Sheriff deputy outside his home in Norridgewock, Maine on March 18, 2014. Officers armed with assault rifles descended on Smith’s home after members of a tree removal crew he’d told to clear off his property reported that he had a gun. The “gun” the tree crew had seen on Smith actually was a life-sized tattoo of a handgun on his stomach. (David Leaming/AP Photo/Morning Sentinel)
