The LAPD has made an arrest in the SWATTING incidents involving Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber -- and the suspect is a minor. 

TMZ broke the stories ... someone called cops and reported gun violence at both homes during separate incidents earlier this year.

Officials say during the Kutcher incident, the caller had advised cops that "there were individuals inside the location with guns and explosives, and that several people had been shot."

But when police arrived to the scene, they learned that it was all a hoax.

Now, cops say ... "On December 10, 2012, Hollywood Detectives arrested a juvenile from the Southern California region for the Ashton Kutcher swatting incident, as well as a similar swatting incident that took place at the home of Justin Bieber. Other swatting incidents involving this individual have been identified."

Haha well police depts and swat probably aren't too bothered by it, pretty much guarantees them future funding and paychecks, having stats on field calls :D

Too bad he's a juvenille. Too damn bad. He pranked a SWAT team to mobilize. That is in no way funny. Try his ass an adult. That should be a federal offense.

Why is everyone in the comments saying "he" and "his". Nothing in that article says it was a boy. It's Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber. I'm willing to bet it was a girl.

A " Hoax " ? I don't know about this. I would be very concerned considering what happened at Sandy Brook School. This 12 year old described as withdrawn & antisocial...doing his pranks over computer, sounds all too much like a troubled kid who needs help NOW before it is too late for others as well as for himself.
