GRETNA, La. (AP) - October 4, 2011

Authorities report a supposed armed robbery at a suburban New Orleans convenience store turned out to be staged.

Responding officers found it was for a music video arranged by the store clerk.

Authorities in Jefferson Parish say the clerk told them he didn't know real weapons would be involved.

Eight suspects, including the clerk, have been busted for criminal mischief.

The clerk also is in trouble with his boss.
