Police initially handcuffed Metta’s brother and cousin after they heard the commotion and came out to speak with cops.

Officers had to wake up the Lakers forward, who quickly vouched for his family.

Eventually, the so-called “armed suspects” came out and proved to police that they were actually residents of the complex.

They were apparently returning home with BB guns while recording a video, TMZ reports. The website says that the four men got off with a warning.
