“We were held at gunpoint,” Brian told Star. “People next to our cars…there were M16s and Berettas!”

A source says the crew was pulled over by armed law enforcement officers, but insist the weapons were never pointed directly at anyone.

The frantic group was not cited and was immediately let go.

“Nicole cursed me with this trip,” Brian said. “It was the craziest adventure ever!”
