For my story, the MC has taken hostages, and the police bring in his girlfriend as a negotiation tactic to try to talk him down. However, I want it so that by unexpected surprise, the girlfriend decides to join the MC in the hostage taking, once she goes through a character change. However, normally the police would keep her away, and have her communicate to the hostage taker by megaphone, or walkie-talkie, or something like that. So I cannot think of a way for her to get close enough to be able to pick up a gun of the MC's, and join him, since the police would be keeping her back, and keeping an eye on her. Even though she believes in his cause, she is not the type to harm the police at all, so anything like that would be out for her, in order to get closer. Does anyone have ideas, how she could do that possibly?
