Police sent to Chris Brown's home in 911 hoax
HOLLYWOOD (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating another celebrity "swatting" prank.
Police were called to singer Chris Brown's Hollywood home around 5 p.m. Monday to investigate a domestic violence situation.
Officers met with members of Brown's staff and determined there was no emergency. Brown was not home at the time of the incident. The case is being investigated as a false emergency report.
The incidents are known as "swatting," which is getting SWAT teams to respond to fake emergencies.
"The scenarios that are painted for the officers that are responding are so vivid and so realistic that the officers are responding at a very heightened level of awareness," said Lt. Andy Nieman with the LAPD.
Last week, Beverly Hills police responded to a fake armed robbery call at Tom Cruise's home.
A juvenile was arrested in December for allegedly making "swatting" calls targeting Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber. Past targets have also included Miley Cyrus.
