CNN reports that comedian Russell Brand is the latest victim of a prank called "swatting." The media outlet reports that Los Angeles police responded to his home Monday afternoon after a 911 call reporting a man with a gun. Turns out the report was false.

There have been several such "swatting" incidents targeting celebrity homes in Los Angeles throughout the last year, according to CNN. The name stems from the hoax's intended result: a large-scale response from police and SWAT.

Other victims include Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber.
