(KARK)  A Little Rock, Arkansas body shop has launched a new promotion that has ignited some controversy.

The Maaco Paint and Collision Repair posted an advertisement on Facebook, citing a new “Bullet Hole Special.”

The shop’s general manager, Nick Fernow came up with the promotion.

“It was kind of a running joke because customers always had some story about how it wasn’t a bullet hole,” Fernow says.  “I think people are afraid to really say what it is.”

“I think people are just scared law enforcement is going to get involved even if they haven’t done anything wrong,” Fernow says.
