Bruce and Kris Jenner reportedly victims of ‘swatting’ incident; Kendall Jenner tweets picture

CBS Los Angeles is reporting that Bruce and Kris Jenner are possibly the victims of a “swatting” incident, in which someone falsely reports a violent crime in order to draw an armed response team to the victim’s house.

Tweets from daughter Kendall Jenner seem to confirm that something is indeed going on, although the 17-year-old seems typically blasé about the incident.

The full photo caption on Instagram reads, “I love it when 8 police officers show up at my door and 10 cop cars are outside my house. just another casual Friday evening at the Jenner household. #nbd #EveryonesOk.”

TMZ reports:

Sources tell us … police came in force to the Hidden Hills residence — several helicopters and cops on the ground with machine guns and other weapons.¬† We’re told there were at least 15 officers on site, who locked down the entire street.

The caller said he/she was in the house, hiding in a closet.

Police swarmed the home of Tom Cruise Thursday after a caller reported an armed robbery in progress.

    I see the mixup.
    they were SUPPOSED to go to tom cruises house to drag him out of the closet.

    in all seriousness though, people need to start getting jailed over this crap.

    There was an assualt going on. They were filming the Kardashians, that’s an assault on America.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Yeah, but when the COn bloggers who were the first to get SWATTED talked to the press, it was just a joke gone wrong. Kim Kardashian’s mom gets SWATTED and it’s America in Crisis. SO be it, if it takes the Kardashian’s to be bring the dangers of SWATTING to light, at least it is something.

      I sent them a tweet about that. No one cared when Conservatives were getting “swatting.” Also, it costs tax payers a pretty penny we do not have!

  • GaryTheBrave

    FOR THE FIRST TIME EVAH I agree with Kim Kardashian.

  • James Ramirez

    What’s the name of the gentleman* who is notorious for playing that game with conservatives? Perhaps, if an example were made of him, this prank would lose its appeal.

    (* yes, it was hard to type that word in this context)

    Mark my words, someday soon there is going to be a tragedy. Someone will be killed and an officer will have to live the rest of his or her life with it on their conscience. Not funny. The far left thinks it is a sport to ‘swat’ a conservative. They started this and they should be held responsible.

    Someone with a serious mental defect – again my guess a Liberal Progressive. This is serious stuff and some idiot thought it would be funny to waste taxpayer dollars to call in a fake shooting. If you get one officer to act hastily it could end badly where someone is shot. What is happening to our society. This is what happens when you don’t believe in God and you only support “what you want”, the entitlement society.

      Watch the homes opf Dennis Miller, Tom Selleck, Burt, Clint, Will Smith, and other Hollywood Conservative’s homes… As long as they’re around, they’ll be victims of this leftist crap! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Let’em Crash

    Somebody’s dogs are going to get shot :(

  • Moue La Moue (D)

    It’s only a serious crime if a Holly-weird Liberals are involved. Otherwise, it’s business as usual and carrying on.
