Ryan Seacrest Gets Swatted
It seems that when you achieve a certain level of fame, the usual nuisances keep popping up; paparazzi, persistent autograph-seekers, and now swatters.
Ryan Seacrest is now the latest swatting victim, according to E! News. Authorities at the Beverly Hills Police Department say that they received a call Wednesday afternoon ”in which a caller reported that a group of armed men was trying to break into Mr. Ryan Seacrest’s residence.”
A press release was issued later saying that “upon arrival, officers made contact with private security at the residence and were told there was no trouble. Officers also contacted Mr. Seacrest and he also confirmed that everything was okay.”
Ironically, Seacrest was on the radio earlier that morning with another swatting victim, Russell Brand, about his experience.
Police are continuing to investigate these incidents.
