Tom Cruise

Latest Swatting Victim

EXCLUSIVE

01172-tom_cruise_house_swatting_Splash
Police just swarmed Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills estate after someone placed a 911 call saying there was an armed intruder on the property ... TMZ has learned.

Beverly Hills cops were all over the property and found nothing. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... it appears to be the latest incident of celebrity swatting. 

Tom was not home at the time. We're told the only people in the house were some security officers and a cook.

FYI, a 12-year-old was arrested recently for allegedly committing a swatting prank against Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber.

It is high time that politicians increase the sentencing for prank police calls.

This is no joke and putting aside the money spent by the town, lives can be lost.

This should be fall under some type of terrorism and the caller/s should do REAL time in jail and brutal fine.

Maybe the caller reporting someone masturbating on the property. The LAPD are known for swarming to those calls.

These prank calls could have some very serious consequences. What would happen if someone decided to shoot up a school or mall while the swat team was tied up giving some idiot a thrill? What if the security officer shot & killed an officer, or an officer shot the security guard? What if Suri had been shot, or another child on a different prank. What if a child somewhere else in the city was hit by a car & died b/c his treatment had been delayed due to some jerks selfish prank? EMS ambulances run on these calls too, not just the Swat team. I am a Nurse & was also a paramedic for 8 years until 2008, & one of our Firefighters wife was in a car accident & died due to a delayed response from an out of area ambulance. Our ambulance/EMS was unable to respond b/c a woman called EMS to take her child to the hospital b/c she had strep throat & was vomiting. Prank calls & EMS-taxi-service calls result in many deaths every year. The laws need to carry heavy sentences in cases like this. The hard part about these is that technology has gotten so good that tracking down the guilty party is almost impossible.
