Well this is awkward!

While the jury decided whether or not Officer Darren Wilson should be convicted after he killed Mike Brown, a Denver resident was taken into custody after he allegedly pointed a banana at a pair of Mesa County deputies.

Nathan Channing, a 27-year-old Fruitvale resident, was arrested Sunday for what he claims was only a mere joke.

Mesa County deputies Joshua Bunch and Donald Love reported that they feared for their lives as Channing pointed the yellow banana at them as if it were a hand gun. Deputy Bunch confirmed that as he began drawing his service weapon Channing immediately yelled, “It’s a banana.”

Channing also went on to tell the deputies that the incident was just merely a trial run for a planned YouTube video that he thought would “lighten the holiday spirit.”

A round of applause is in order for Channing for being the Donkey of the Day! Everyone, well almost everyone, knows that you can’t just go around pointing things at officers especially when they put their lives on the line everyday.

Big ups to the deputies though for not shooting Channing over his harmless, but stupid, nonetheless, prank.

If Nathan Channing is convicted of the charges, he could receive one to three years in prison and a fine between $1,000 and $10,000.
