Chris Brown

SWATTING VICTIM

Cops Swarm L.A. Home

EXCLUSIVE

1130_chris_brown_Article_
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.

IT's not that funny at all. The called is wasting his time and that of police. Shame on u! Chris might be out of all this, until we know the identity of the caller. (out of subject bu if somone wants tickets for Chris Brown concerts, he may get them from Ticketsreview)

Maybe you should criticize his mistakes his doing now instead of his past. If god can forgive why can't everyone forgive what happen. If he was doing it now then he could be point out as a beater but if he stopped then he learned from his mistakes

Too Bad this loser wasn't home holding a gun or beating another woman. Then maybe the LA SWAT team would have killed him, Oops just another mistake. He is just a low life woman beater and will never be anything else.

BTW..lay off Chris Brown..he has nothing to do with this. It's happening to a lot of celebs.
CB is trying to be a better man. Give him a break and let him be.

This is getting Ridiculous! Can't the cops catch this guy?? Some real emergency could be going on but the emergency folks are all tied up in a prank. Find him and put his childish ass in jail.

Maybe if the media stopped reporting on these so-called pranks, these kids would stop doing it.

WOW...    

Sounds like someone is getting ready to REALLY rob someone big....like the little boy who cried wolf! Make several false calls so that when the real one hits, they are relaxed and in no hurry....mmhhmm, smell a rat..

Good thing he wasn't home. He would have put some shoeprints on a few foreheads and sent them home.
