Russell Brand - Russell Brand Is Hollywood's Latest Swatting Target

Russell Brand has become Hollywood's latest 'swatting' victim after police received a hoax 911 call reporting armed men at the comedian's home.

Cops raided the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star's home in Los Angeles to investigate claims two gun-toting men clad in body armour were approaching the property.

According to Tmz.com, Los Angeles Police Department officers who arrived at the scene found no one there and determined the call was a 'swatting' prank.

Brand is believed to have left his house 30 minutes before the fake emergency call was placed.

Lapd bosses are trying to crack down on crank callers who 'swat' the homes of celebrities, following similar incidents at the houses of A-listers including Rihanna, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake.
