Chris Brown got swatted!

If you don’t know what swatting is, it’s basically when bored suburban teens decide to call the cops and send a SWAT team to a famous person’s house. What does this accomplish? Not much, other than wasting police force time and slightly inconveniencing the rich and famous. It’s like when you send a pizza to someone’s house, only, you know, it’s illegal. And that’s bad. Except when you do it to Chris Brown, because Chris Brown is terrible. Entertainment Weekly reports …

Police have responded to Chris Brown’s home after they received a call about a domestic violence situation that turned out to be false. The Los Angeles Times reports police were contacted shortly before 5 p.m. Monday about a domestic violence incident. When police arrived, members of Brown’s staff were at the home, but the singer wasn’t. Police searched the home and didn’t find any problems. It’s the latest so-called “swatting” prank targeting celebrities. The practice is intended to get multiple officers, including specialized SWAT teams sent to a home.

Honestly, I feel pretty bad for the police here. Not because they were forced to investigate a false report but because they were forced to be around Chris’ home. Man, that has to be just corrosive to the soul, it really does.
