Ryan Seacrest Was Just Swatted, Prank Is Apparently Not Getting Old For Some People
Dozens of celebrities have been victims of swatting -- where fake 911 calls send police to their houses -- and for a short while there, it seemed like the game was going to get old.
But today, yet another swat has been reported, this time at the home of Ryan Seacrest. TMZ reports that a caller told emergency personnel that there were "mobster looking guys in suits with rifles" firing shots inside the TV/radio host's Beverly Hills home.
Cops were already there when the gossip site broke the news at approximately 3:30 p.m.
Last week, Diddy was swatted, and yesterday, Russell Brand fell victim. In the past, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher and Tom Cruise have been swatting victims. Kutcher's swat was estimated to have cost the city about $10,000 in taxpayer money.
In other words: enough already.
