Prank Caller Sends Cops to Chris Brown's House

Prank Caller Sends Cops to Chris Brown's House

Breezy is the latest target of celebrity pranker.

Published January 22, 2013

Cops were on the scene at Chris Brown’s Hollywood home yesterday afternoon (Jan. 21) — but no, it wasn’t because of any Breezy misdeeds.

TMZ reports that law enforcement sources say a prank caller dialed 911 and reported a domestic incident involving a gun, which prompted the police to speed to singer's home.

The caller alleged a mother and father were fighting and that the father went to another room in the house to get a gun. The prankster then hung up without mentioning that it was Chris Brown's residence.

When cops arrived, they found zero evidence of a gunman or any dispute — and Chris Brown wasn’t even home.

It’s very possible he was out in the scene with Rihanna: The on-again, off-again couple have been spotted around L.A. together recently — at the studio recording a new song (though they left from separate exits), hitting the Emerson nightclub and even making a Slurpee run.

The prank is the latest in a series of “swatting” pranks targeting celebrities. Last Friday a caller falsely reported a man with a gun in the home of Kris and Bruce Jenner. The LAPD is on the case, and say they’ve made catching the culprits a priority.
