Justin Bieber

Latest Target of

911 'Swatting' Prank

Justin Bieber is the latest victim of a 911 "Swatting" prank ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

A 911 call came in last night ... the caller claiming someone was waving a gun right next to Justin's L.A. home.

Police sent the cavalry ... cars, helicopters, the works.  Sources tell us ... Justin's security let the cops in, and they did a sweep of the house but found nothing.  We're also told cops did a similar sweep of 2 other homes on the block.

The block is a super-exclusive area peppered with celebs, including Travis Barker, Romeo, Kourtney Kardashian, and a number of athletes.

In the end, we're told cops determined the 911 caller engaged in a swatting prank using an app ... that's what law enforcement told us.  The same thing happened recently to Miley Cyrus and Ashton Kutcher, and a bunch of non-famous folk.

Famous people should NOW be required to show a wound or intruder on their property via cell phone picture sent to police before any law enforcement is dispatched to their home. This should save tax payer dollars.

And I was hoping being non-famous would give me some kind of advantage.

There's a problem here    

That is in no way funny. How can they not figure out who makes these calls? If I were a resident of LA I would be completely pissed because of the huge expense it takes to mobilize a SWAT team.

Lets take the cops away from real crimes. I say once they find the person or people responsible make them pay the police for the false calls.
