Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore says it’s too soon to tell whether the reality TV stars are the latest victims of so-called “swatting,” a hoax intended to get officers, including specialized SWAT teams, sent to a home.
Deputies who responded to the call Friday found no crime had been committed.
Kim Kardashian decried the hoax on Twitter, calling it “dangerous” and “not a joke.”
Police last week responded to a false report of an armed robbery at Tom Cruise’s Beverly Hills home. In December, a boy was arrested after police said he made calls that reported violence at the homes of Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher.
