Swatting S.W.A.T. Teams with Fake Calls


Got a neighbor you hate? An old enemy you want to have the SWAT team visit? Anticipating drunken, DNC revelers in the hotel room down the hall?

Ringy-Dingy!

SALINAS, Calif.—The SWAT team responding to a 911 call of three men armed with assault rifles surrounded a Salinas apartment before learning a high-tech hoaxer made the bogus call long-distance on his computer.
Fifteen heavily armed special weapons officers descended on the apartment Wednesday night after a caller to a Monterey County 911 operator claimed he was a 15-year-old boy and three men with AK-47s were trying to break in.

It turned out a boy in the apartment had been chatting on his computer with someone believed to be in Chicago and that person apparently used an Internet calling system to generate a phony call to 911 dispatchers, a practice known as swatting.
