Apparently the new fad around Hollywood is to prank call the police and send them to the homes of celebrities, and the Kardashians are just the latest victims in a string of fake emergency calls. The practice is called “swatting” and has affected the likes of Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus, to name a few.

The famous reality family got a shock when several officers showed up at their door, saying there had been a report of someone being shot at the residence. Kim, who wasn’t home at the time, tweeted about the incident:

The L.A.P.D. isn’t too happy about it, either, and say they are lobbying to make these calls a federal offense. Not only are they a huge waste of time and expense, but faux emergency calls take officers away from people who actually need help.

L.A. County Sheriff spokesperson Steve Whitmore released a statement about the call, saying, “What we want to do is have the legislature turn up the heat on these people. This is a serious, serious crime.”
