Clint Eastwood latest victim of swatting

By Gavriella Tjandra,

Clint Eastwood's L.A. property is the latest victim of a bogus 911 call.

L.A. authorities told TMZ that multiple law enforcement units rushed to the director/actor's property this week, after receiving a report of armed men with assault weapons being inside his house and that people had been shot.

Upon the police's arrival at the scene, there was nothing wrong.

The authorities were unable to determine whether anyone was at home at the time when the report was received.

L.A. police have started to get really furious about this, because, according to them the prank calls were a huge waste of valuable resources, and even able to put people's lives in danger.

An officer said that anyone caught doing this will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

A 12-year-old had been charged previously in connection with swatting incidents.

Eastwood is not the only celebrity on the 'swatted' list.

Last month, police swarmed the Kardashians' Calabasas mansion after receiving a prank call about a shooting, The Huffington Post reported.

The authorities even brought helicopters and 15 police with machine guns to the scene, but of course, they found nothing.
