Example of a celebrity swatting
Police are called and some criminal activity is being reported. Two men are shooting and holding several people hostage in this home. The caller claims to have actually heard gun shots and saw two individuals pulled into a home and are apparently being held against their will. Police are given an address where the chaotic activity is going on. Police are now in pursuit to the home.
When police arrive, their guns are drawn and they are walking around the home to investigate what’s actually going on. They are on high alert because they’ve been warned of the gun shots and possible hostages being held. They are looking for any movement and tentatively listening for any possible victim being harmed. They soon realize nothing seems to be happening, more than likely knocks on the door of the home and finds out there is not criminal activity going, but then also realize, the home where they are is actually where a celebrity lives.
