NEW CUMBERLAND, W.Va. (AP) – A rapper’s use of a West Virginia courtroom to film a vigilante-themed music video with using fake guns has not made a fan of at least one local official.

The Weirton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1TB9EVI) reports that Hancock County Commissioner Jeff Davis is disturbed that the courtroom was used by a Weirton rapper known as Mini Thin. Davis wants his fellow commissioners to adopt rules to ensure a similar scenario doesn’t occur again.

In his musical persona as Mini Thin, Jason Mallas said he used the Circuit Court chambers on June 12 to film the video.

An actress named Jennifer Blaze wore fatigues during the four-hour shoot and fake guns were used to depict a story about the rescue of a rape victim.
