The 12-year-old boy who allegedly SWATTED Ashton Kutcher -- by reporting a fake gun battle inside the actor's home -- has been charged with several crimes in connection to the incident ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... cops raced to Ashton's L.A. home in October after the boy allegedly contacted police and said there were people in the residence with guns and explosives. The caller also said several people had been shot.

When police arrived, they realized the whole thing was a prank -- there was never any real danger.

Officials believe the boy also pulled a similar "swatting" prank on an L.A. bank later that month.

The boy has been charged with two felony counts of making false bomb threats and two felony counts of computer intrusion.

The boy -- whose name has not been released because he is a minor -- is set to be arraigned in Juvenile Court tomorrow.

They should bill him for all the wasted man hours or he can work it off since he is only twelve by washing all the police cars every weekend until he is 18.

His parents should pay restitution to the tax payers for every minute of manpower finding his little criminal azz. The ONLY way to get results for these future inmates is to hit the parents hard in their pocketbook!

When I was 12 I was watching Nickelodeon and playing kickball, not causing chaos on a federal level.

There are a lot of troubled children out there. This kid's parents need to pay attention to him. I sure hope that they do not used that tired old saying, "I can't believe that my child would do something like this." Sure, they are capable of doing just about anything.
