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?

Maybe it was the imaginary person that was sitting in the chair at the RNC convention, that broke into Clint's house.

When they catch these idiots doing this, they better be punished to the full extend of the law. People are so mean nowadays. They need to have hard labor to do.

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

Hahahaha. The LAPD is worried about putting innocent lives at risk? Not what was on their mind when they shot those two Hispanic women or that old white guy. Just saying.

If the idiot didn't spend his time speaking to an empty chair, then he would not have been targeted. After such behavior, how could the police NOT take the 9/11 call seriously?
