The scene could open a teen action movie: Police surround Miley Cyrus' mansion, weapons drawn, watching for an armed kidnapper to slip out the back door.
Any second now.
Shocking twist! The house is empty (and the unsuspecting singer is probably at some swanky West Hollywood restaurant, feeding sushi to fiance Liam Hemsworth in a corner booth.)
On Wednesday night, Cyrus was the target of "swatting" -- a prank in which an anonymous caller reports a heinous crime to authorities so a SWAT team will swarm an innocent person's home -- TMZ reported.
The caller, whom Los Angeles police are said to be tracking, told a 911 operator that Cyrus' property had been invaded by a kidnapper and there had been a shooting.
