'Swatters' behind fake celeb calls to pay hefty fines

London, Sept 15 : Swatters, who send police and SWAT teams to celebrity homes by making hoax calls, will face tougher penalties under a new California law.


The law takes aim at the expensive and, dangerous hoax known as swatting, when a caller says that violent intruders have taken over a celebrity's home, while prompting a massive police response, the Daily Star reported.

Hollywood stars, whose homes have been hit by the 'swatters' include Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber and Clint Eastwood.
