Chris Brown latest 'swatting' target

Chris Brown has become the latest celebrity 'swatting' victim after a hoax call led to a police raid at his Los Angeles home on Monday (21Jan13).

Cops raced to the Don't Wake Me Up hitmaker's Hollywood Hills property after an unidentified individual placed a 911 call to falsely report a domestic incident involving a gun.

When the police arrived there was no sign of a gunman or any dispute, according to TMZ.com.

It is unclear whether the singer was at home at the time of the incident.

Other celebrities targeted by swatters include Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher and the Kardashian family.
