CoD Gamer Loses Scares, Reports Opposing Players to Police & SWAT
Filed under: CALL OF DUTY, SWATTING


As if this world wasn't crazy enough, we get more idiots roaming the planet and doing this sort of thing. An enraged gamer has done a rather moronic thing, having lost in a match in the popular multiplayer shooter Call of Duty. Bitter in defeat, the player made a prank phone call, which caused the SWAT team to burst into the home of the opposing player, Castillo. Yeah, you may have already heard of this, it's called Swatting. 

Apparently, he said that the opposing player shot his mother and brother and was threatening to do more killing. The SWAT team weren't the only ones at the scene. Police helicopters, spec ops and other emergency response units were sent to the scene.   

"I right away had an idea what it was, because I've seen [similar pranks] on the news," Castillo explains to NYP. "It was probably just an evil little kid," added a police officer at the scene.

"We went and checked out the place and there was nothing there. "It sucked up a lot of resources, caused traffic problems. It turned out to be a hoax."

The kid should have shagged that guy's mother instead, that's a true gamer revenge. Not calling the cops to deal with it for you.

They should prosecute to stupid kids that called in the SWAT team and bill him the costs of deployment (I heard $100k on the news? salary/gas/equipment etc etc)
  CJ_Parker: That and for memory's sake use a staple gun to firmly…
drakevonlee: completely agree
