Chris Brown Is the Latest Victim of ‘Swatting’
It seems that the same culprits that sent a swat team to Tom Cruise’s mansion last week in Beverly Hills have just struck again. This time the victim, if you could ever call him that, is Chris Brown.
For those of you not familiar with Swatting: it is basically the act of calling up the popo and informing them of a non-existent domestic violence at a given address involving firearms. The address, of course, is the address to the mansion of someone famous.
Then, you just sit back and watch as the Swat team arrives at the mansion, knocks down the door, and scares the crap out of whoever happens to be home at the time.
“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the caller claimed a mother and father were in a fight and the father went to another room in the house to get a gun. At that point the caller hung up, never mentioning it was Chris Brown’s house.”
It is unclear whether or not Mr. Brown was home, and if so, whether or not he dropped a brown in his pants when the team drop-kicked his front door, but for mere amusement purposes, let’s assume that’s exactly how it happened.
