Miley Cyrus at the Butt of ‘Swatting’ Prank
On August 1, cops were called to Miley Cyrus’s LA home after an apparent 911 call reporting a home invasion and shots fired.
The LAPD promptly responded by sending out a police helicopter and heavily armed police officers who surrounded the home with guns drawn, according to reports.
After a few minutes of confusion, the officers realized that they were the butt of a pestering prank known as ‘swatting.’
Swatting is an irritating prank in which someone prank calls emergency dispatchers with a fabricated emergency in order for them to send out law enforcement to someone’s home, reports ABC.
This is a serious crime and perpetrators can expect to face serious criminal charges.
