Even Hollywood legends aren’t immune to the modern scourge known as “swatting.”
TMZ reports L.A. police rushed to the home of acting icon Clint Eastwood yesterday as part of the latest celebrity swatting incident.
The site says a report indicating “multiple males armed with assault weapons inside the actor’s house and people had been shot” inspired the house call.
When the officers arrived at the scene, we’re told they found nothing wrong … the standard “swatting” scenario. Police were unable to determine if anyone was home at the time of the prank.
Swatters previously targeted stars like Ashton Kutcher, Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise, but conservative bloggers also have found themselves subject to these dangerous pranks.
