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.

Mistaken identity, lol. You tend to panic when you're dirty and the drug man is at the door.

The drug tester could have at least called first. If someone showed up at my house at 6AM for a drug test I'd be furious!

It's all right. He can pee standing up. Besides if they have not tagged him for roids yet, they probably never will.

Yeah. OK. That's it. She's been a pro for how long? I'm sure this is not the first time a drug tester showed up unannounced. It's their job to do that. Even if she didn't recognize them at first, wouldn't the thought that this was possibly the drug tester at least cross her mind. And she saw them OUTSIDE on security cameras. It wasn't like the dude was inside the house. Sounds very fishy. At the same time, the drug tester could have just wiped the urine from the floor when she pissed herself in fear before retreating to her panic room.
