Chris Brown's house targeted in latest celebrity 'swatting' prank

January 22, 2013|By Christie D'Zurilla

Same story, different celebrity: Chris Brown's house was the target Monday of an apparent "swatting" incident, in which police responded in force to a distress call that turned out to be fake.

In this case, dispatchers were advised around 5 p.m. of a domestic violence situation — we're biting our tongue — in which the caller told police his parents were fighting and he wasn't sure if his mom had been shot, Los Angeles Police Department sources told L.A. Now and TMZ.

When police arrived at the address, surprise, no gun, no fight, no nothing. No Chris Brown, either. Only a few staff members were home at the time.

Brown's parents arrived after police officers had searched the home, according to L.A. Now.

On Friday, Kris and Bruce Jenner's house was the target of a swatting.
