(LOS ANGELES) — Oscar-winning director and movie tough guy Clint Eastwood has reportedly joined Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and a host of other celebrities as a victim of the dangerous prank known as “swatting.”
TMZ reports an anonymous person called the Los Angeles Police Department earlier in the week to report armed men were on Eastwood’s property and that people had been shot.
The LAPD responded in force, only to find the emergency at Eastwood’s home was made up.
Earlier this month, a 12-year-old boy was charged with pulling the same scam on Ashton Kutcher back in October of last year.
