chris brown swatting gun prank Chris Brown swatting gun prank brings the copsThis trend of “swatting” celebrities is really getting out of control. Tom Cruise was hit last week, the Kardashian family was hit twice over the weekend and now Chris Brown.

TMZ is reporting that cops were called to Chris Brown’s Hollywood Hills home Monday (Jan. 21) under the guise of a domestic dispute. Law enforcement sources say that the caller said a mother and father were fighting and the father went to get a gun.

When the Los Angeles Police Department responded, there was no evidence of a gunman or any dispute. There is no word as to whether Chris Brown was home at the time or not. But the LAPD says they are determined to catch whomever is behind these pranks.

Regardless of how you feel about any particular celebrities, these pranks are dumb and could potentially be dangerous, not to mention wasting the time and manpower of the police.
