Serena Williams

Locked in Panic Room

Over Drug Test Mix-Up

11/2/2011 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Serena Williams
Serena Williams went into total lockdown last week -- fleeing to a panic room inside her L.A. mansion after security cameras picked up a suspected intruder ... but it was all a case of mistaken identity.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Serena's assistant called 911 around 6AM last Wednesday, reporting a possible burglar or prowler. It was so serious, we're told Serena retreated to her panic room for safe keeping in case things got dangerous.

But we're told, it was a false alarm -- the person on Serena's security camera was a random drug tester for an unspecified tennis association, stopping by Serena's pad unannounced for some pee.

Police rushed to the scene after the 911 call, but quickly figured out the mistake. It's unclear if Serena eventually submitted to a pee test. Attempts to reach her reps were unsuccessful.

Similar to the Greek Olympians who pretended to get in a motorcycle accident so they could skip a drug test. She is possibly the most juiced athlete in history and continues to get away with it. She knows that drug testers are supposed to come at that time, because she picks the time that drug testers can come (1 hour time slot in 24 hour period).

I'm surprised she ran and hid. I'd have thought she'd have beaten the sh*t out of him. Guess her big ghetto mouth and muscle man looks are all for show and for berating and threatening line judges.

Well, that's one way to get a urine sample from her.

Give Serena a break. She has had her share of violence when her sister was murdered in a shooting. and really - 6am drug testing call. Really - it is a bit extreme.

PLease I ask the judge to send Lindsay Lohan to a rehab instead to send her to a jail because for what I know she has a disorder no matter what punishment she got she's going to do the same thing again over that's the way personality disorder works, and she may end up to kill herself some day, I cry inside my heart for her because people cannot figure out her sickness people treats her bad.
