Getting out of hand...
TMZ reports that Clint Eastwood was the latest celebrity targeted by a swatting prank.
Police rushed to the Eastwood's Los Angeles home this week after a relay service called 911 and reported several males with assault weapons outside of his home. It was also reported that people had been shot. When police arrived, they found nothing wrong, which is usually what happens after a successful "Swatting" prank. They were unable to find if someone was home at the time of the prank.
Other victims of the pranks include Ashton Kutcher, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Simon Cowell, Tom Cruise, the Kardashians, and Chris Brown.
The LAPD are starting to get upset because the pranks are a waste of resource and could put innocent lives in danger.
A source said: "The suspects WILL be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
A 12-year-old has already been charged in connection with the calls.
