Russell Brand

SWATTED

EXCLUSIVE

0408_russell_brand_house_article
The swatting epidemic continues ... this time, the victim is Russell Brand, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops raced to Brand's L.A. home after receiving a call from someone reporting two men with guns approaching the home.

We're told the caller told police one of the men was black, one white -- and they were each sporting body armor.

When cops arrived to the scene, no one was there -- Russell had left the home 30 minutes prior to the call.

After a thorough inspection of the property, cops eventually determined the whole thing was a prank -- another "swatting" incident ... just like Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Diddy, the Kardashians, etc.

Russell Brand.... so not funny, swat Charlie Murphy or Kat Williams.... at least it would be entertaining. What I don't get is when you call 911, it shows dispatch exactly where the call is coming from, so how do they keep getting away with it. ?

I think the law enforcement should make a very public statement that when the idiots are caught, they will be charged with the crime...but also the complete cost of what would be hitting the tax payers in the county.

As said before; I hope the person/ people behind the swatting are charged with attempted murder or manslaughter when eventually caught.

It is starting to look like " inside jobs " for press or relevancy.
