A Florida teenager was sentenced to 18 months in custody for coaxing his senile grandmother into holding a gun and threatening to shoot "all the pigs" in a home-made "gangsta rap" video.
Michael Alfinez, 18, pleaded guilty to elder abuse charges at a West Palm Beach court. His family said the case was a misunderstanding.
The 85-year-old grandmother can be seen in the video holding a handgun, wearing a black mask and threatening to shoot "all the pigs".
Alfinez was arrested in April after authorities seized the tape during a routine traffic stop.
Alfinez and others also could be seen in the video shooting a pistol around town.
The teenager also pleaded guilty to charges of firing out of a moving vehicle and into a building.
