TMZ: Attempted SWATting at Miley Cyrus’s Home
Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:33 pm

Nobody was home and nobody was hurt:

    Cops raced to Miley Cyrus’ L.A. house tonight after receiving a report about a possible home invasion … but when they arrived to the scene, it turned out to be a false alarm … and all signs point to a troubling prank known as “Swatting.”

    Law enforcement sources confirm … the LAPD received a 911 call at 6:50 PM to report a possible home invasion, possible shots fired.

    The LAPD responded immediately … guns drawn … but the house was quiet, no one was home … and there was no sign of a crime. Cops determined it was a false alarm.

    Law enforcement tells TMZ … officials now believe the caller is a “911 abuser.”

    The call seems to fall in line with a prank called “Swatting” — in which a caller tries to trick emergency responders into dispatching law enforcement (like the SWAT team) to a home by making up a serious crime.

The more people do this without consequence, the more it will happen. One day someone is going to get hurt.

Maybe law enforcement will take this one seriously . . .
