Police arrest kid behind celebrity hoax 911 calls
A minor from Southern California area was arrested on December 10 for making celebrity hoax 911 calls.
The practice has been dubbed "swatting" as the calls are intended to get multiple officers, including specialized SWAT teams, sent to a home.
Prosecutors were reviewing a possible case against the person, who Los Angeles Police Department said could be responsible for multiple hoax calls intended to provoke large police responses, the Telegraph reported.
Police said the child reported that multiple people had been shot at Ashton Kutcher's home on October 3, and reported shots fired at Justin Bieber's home a week later.
The stars were not home at the time, and officers determined that no one was injured.
The fake distress calls had been made through an electronic system.
In a news release, police said that multiple agencies including the FBI and Long Beach Police Department were involved in the investigation.
Long Beach detectives who investigate cybercrimes were consulted during the investigation and the agency was not involved in the arrest.
Police only said that the juvenile lives in the Southern California area and refused to provide any other details about the suspect.
The person is suspected of being involved in other "swatting" incidents, but police did not say whether they involved celebrities.
