12-Year-Old Boy Who Allegedly Swatted Ashton Kutcher Charged With Four Felony Counts
Entertainment

It’s all fun and games…until you get caught! The 12-year-old boy who allegedly “swatted” Ashton Kutcher has been charged with several crimes in connection to the incident.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the incident… police raced to Ashton’s Los Angeles home in October after the boy allegedly contacted authorities and reported that there were people in the residence with loaded fire arms and explosives.

The caller also said several people had been shot. It was not until the police arrived that they realized the whole thing was a prank!

Officials have now linked the boy to a similar “swatting” prank involving an L.A. bank later that month.

The boy — whose name has not been released because he is a minor – has been charged with two felony counts of making false bomb threats and two felony counts of computer intrusion.
