Clint Eastwood

SWATTED

A "swatting" prankster in L.A. must have a death wish ... because TMZ has learned, the latest bogus 911 call to involve a celebrity targeted Dirty Harry himself ... Clint Eastwood.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, multiple units rushed to Eastwood's L.A. home this week after a relay service called 911 ... reporting multiple males armed with assault weapons inside the actor's house and people had been shot.

When the officers arrived at the scene, we're told they found nothing wrong ... the standard "swatting" scenario.

Police were unable to determine if anyone was home at the time of the prank.

It's the latest in a long string of similar celebrity "swatting" pranks -- other victims include Ashton KutcherJustin BieberMiley CyrusSimon CowellTom Cruise, the Kardashians, and Chris Brown.

The LAPD is really starting to get pissed too -- because the pranks are a HUGE waste of valuable resources and even put innocent people's lives in danger. As one law enforcement source put it, "The suspects WILL be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law." One 12-year-old kid has already been charged in connection with some of the calls.

So, to whoever keeps doing this ... you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

This sh_t is so f_cking stupid "Haha! Let's call in a fake crisis and have the entire police force show up at a celebrities' house for no reason, that would be sooo funny!". Kids these days are dumb as hell.

This is ridiculous. Hopefully consistent prosecution will stop this idiotic trend.

"Police were unable to determine if anyone was home at the time of the prank." - Contacted and asked for comment latter Clint revealed he hadn't yet put his hearing aid on and was unaware SWAT had stormed his home.

Where are those crying about "their" precious "tax dollars?"
Even though they don't live within a thousand miles of L.A.?

Knowing how the LAPD likes to shoot anything that moves, I'm surprised a celeb hasn't been put down yet by "accident".

And we know that the LAPD does when it gets pissed off...watch out innocent bystanders.

They are only pissed because it takes them away from celebrity traffic stops to get autographs.

The only reason it is a danger to the public is because cops shoot first and ask questions later. Any they don't care who they shoot as long as they get to do it!!!

Maybe the idiot cops should ask themselves why they get fooled all the time. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." What does it say when you get fooled eight times?

You know, a lot of the commenters here are posting like this was funny.

Let me tell you, I doubt the police think that nuisance alarms are funny.

And when they catch this guy, neither he nor the judge he's brought before is going to be laughing either.
