[NEWS] Miley' California Home Swarmed by Police in Possible Hoax

Miley Cyrus’ Los Angeles home was swarmed by police, fire and rescue squads responding to a report of a possible home invasion, but the pop star was apparently the victim of a “swatting” prank.
Law enforcement officials said a 911 call came in Wednesday at 6:50 p.m. PT, stating a possible home invasion with possible shots fired at Cyrus’ home.
“We responded to a call of a kidnapping in progress, one person shot, at an address on Amanda Drive,” North Hollywood police said.
A recording of a two-way police radio call from Wednesday night seems to confirm that an incident occurred at an address corresponding with where Cyrus lives.
Officers established a perimeter and, with their guns drawn, approached the house. Everything was quiet and no one was home.
Police determined it was a false call and declared it a possible “swatting” prank in which bogus calls are made in an attempt to get SWAT cops to bust down doors of innocent people.
