Kim Kardashian has heard from her mother Kris Jenner that their family home in Hidden Hills was swarmed by cops with guns drawn in a swatting prank, and she was not amused. The pregnant star slams anyone(s) who called 911 informing about fake home invasion.
“Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home & 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!” she tweeted. “These prank calls are NOT funny! People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out who is behind this. Its dangerous & not a joke!”
Her sister Kendall Jenner, meanwhile, detailed what happened by posting pictures on Instagram. One photo shows a chopper flying high above their property, another sees police cars lining up on the street near their house, and the other features officers posing with Bruce Jenner inside the house.
“I love it when 8 police officers show up at my door and 10 cop cars are outside my house,” she wrote, before adding, “Just another casual Friday evening at the Jenner household. #nbd #EveryonesOk.” On a serious note, she tweeted, “kids are really stupid. you know you can get arrested for something like this? #pointless.”
Police sent cars and helicopters to the Kardashian residence after they received a call that someone was injured inside the house and armed people were still inside. Bruce, Kris and Kendall were at home with Kylie Jenner when the officers arrived on the scene. Nothing alarming was found by cops.
The incident happened hot on heels of a similar swatting prank targeting Tom Cruise‘s house. More hoax calls were made last year, prompting authorities to send emergency helps to houses belonging to the likes of Miley Cyrus, Simon Cowell, Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher.
A 12-year-old boy linked to the Bieber and Kutcher incident was arrested in Southern California in late 2012, but the arrest clearly is not enough to prevent another repeat.
