Tom Cruise is the latest celeb to get 'swatted,' but what's that mean?1/19/2013
Poor Tom Cruise. The Hollywood mega-celebrity has become the latest star to a victim of "swatting." A hoax 911 call was placed telling authorities that an armed robbery was taking place at Cruise's Beverly Hills home. When police arrived, they discovered … nothing at all. The calls are referred to as "swatting" because the goal is reportedly to get as many police as possible to respond to a situation, including SWAT teams. It truly is a sport for people with too much time on their hands. Similar calls have been made to the homes of celebs including Miley Cyrus, Simon Cowell, Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher. Cruise and his family weren't at home at the time of the incident. [Source]
