Chris Brown got swatted

Chris Brown is the latest celebrity to fall victim to the “swatting” prank, where an anonymous caller reports a violent crime in progress to the police with the hopes a SWAT team will show up and storm the victim’s house. Aw shucks, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. From the L.A. Times:
Police were contacted shortly before 5 p.m. Monday and told of a domestic violence situation at the home. The caller told police he wasn’t sure if his mother had been shot, the Los Angeles Police Department said. But when officers arrived, members of Brown’s staff were at the home but Brown was not, according to police. His parents arrived after police officers had arrived and searched the home.
Look, even if this was a prank, are we sure the SWAT team didn’t find anything at Chris’ house? You’d think they’d at least find him punching a kitten or kicking a puppy or stealing cookies from a Girl Scout, you know, things I assume he does during his free time.
