Chris Brown

SWATTING VICTIM

Cops Swarm L.A. Home

EXCLUSIVE

Cops raced to Chris Brown's Hollywood Hills home Monday afternoon ... after someone called 911 and reported a domestic incident involving a gun, but we're told it was all a prank.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the caller claimed a mother and father were in a fight and the father went to another room in the house to get a gun.  At that point the caller hung up, never mentioning it was Chris Brown's house.

When cops arrived there was no evidence of a gunman or for that matter any dispute.

Chris was NOT home at the time.

This is the latest in a string of swatting incidents involving celebs, the most recent being last Friday when someone falsely reported a man with a gun in the home of Kris and Bruce Jenner.

LAPD law enforcement sources tell us ... they are determined to catch the culprits ... and STAT.

LAPD is behind this. They were facing layoffs, so they stage these false alarms to keep busy, okay, that was the plot of Backdraft. Nevermind.

If the swatting incidents weren't reported by the media there would be no real incentive to swat in the first place.

Why call the celebs the victims? They're usually not even home. It's the taxpayer that is the victim here. They're v close to catching these frauds/cowards and when they do, they'll pay in a big big way. As they should.

Lol, whatever, he called this in himself for the publicity. No one cares about his disgusting, pathetic, woman-beating ass. He is just desperately trying to stay relevant - and is failing miserably.
