* Russian propaganda outlet [=WikiLeaks=] claimed this happened with the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_12,_2007_Baghdad_airstrike Apache aistrike in Baghdad in 2007]] in an incident that killed two reporters. Averted in reality; the reporters were [[TooDumbToLive embedded with a group of armed insurgents during a pitched battle in the city,]] and one of them appeared to be acting as a spotter for the insurgents.

* Very, ''very'' narrowly averted in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', when Dresden feels an envelope poking into his side, and he reaches to adjust it while in the middle of a conversation with Gentleman Johnny Marcone. Marcone's goons react predictably, and Marcone stops them about half a second short of pumping Dresden full of lead.
** It should be noted that Marcone can draw and use a weapon faster than his bodyguards (and just about every other human, come to that). He just knew Harry could paste him without so much as twitching, and moreover, that Harry probably wouldn't do so.

** To be fair, the reports of a man carrying a sword around the neighborhood were [[MistakenIdentity eventually proven to be true]].

* A British police officer in Lancashire responding to a report of a man carrying a "samurai sword" ended up Tasering [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-19979184 a blind man carrying a white stick]]. Must have seen too much ''{{Zatoichi}}''.

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'', Sun and Mercury tackle Jaune when he's trying to show off his library card when they decide to frame him for littering. Originally, though, Sun was supposed to shout "HE'S REACHING!", but [[RealLifeWritesThePlot a few bad incidents involving cops]] made them change the line.

* In 2014, a police officer shot a 17-year-old boy in the chest immediately after he answered the door. She claims he had pointed a handgun at her, but eyewitness accounts state that it was a [[UsefulNotes/NintendoWii Wii Remote]]. Note that a Wii Remote looks nothing like a handgun.

* There was a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_12,_2007_Baghdad_airstrike rather famous incident]] that was first shown on [=WikiLeaks=] that portrayed an Apache helicopter killing an unarmed cameraman. The justification given was that the angle the soldiers saw the man, combined with the crappy camera quality, ended up making the poor cameraman look like he was carrying an RPG-7.
** This description is wrong in several respects and this case was not an example of this trope. There were two unarmed Reuters cameramen present but they were with an armed group of Iraqis who were having an ongoing street battle with coalition forces, and they had two RPG's which were positively identified before the helicopter fired that were recovered from the blast site. Additionally one of the cameramen was acting as a "spotter" for the insurgents, he had used his digital camera to take a photo around the corner of a building in order to pinpoint the location of coalition vehicles, and showed the photo through his camera's viewfinder to the insurgents presumably for targeting purposes.

** Another episode had Bulldog accidentally foil a robbery this way. He was trying to hide from a guy pulling out his wallet by using a woman as a human shield, and by complete coincidence disarmed the real criminal by bumping into him (and incidentally looking to everyone but Frasier like he was pulling the woman to safety).
