SWAT Team Sent To Lil Wayne’s Miami Home In Apparent Hoax

 

 

 

 

 

” A SWAT team arrived at Lil Wayne‘s Miami home Wednesday afternoon after reports of gunshots and injuries. But despite a scan of Wayne’s property, the team found no signs of foul play following the hour-plus search. Miami police representative Ernesto Rodriguez has confirmed that the event was a hoax.

  Whether the hoax was a straightforward prank call or an intentional ploy to send over a SWAT team remains unclear. The practice is increasingly common between online gamers, but if this was an intentional “swatting,” Lil Wayne is the highest-profile celebrity to fall victim to the practice. “

BREAKING NEWS: tonight I was swatted. More details to come. @Liberty_Chick @Patterico @ali @michellemalkin @AoSHQ @Dust92@rsmccain

Aaron Walker, one of the bloggers targeted by Brett Kimberlin, is the latest victim of SWAT-ting. Walker, who goes by Aaron Worthing online, tweeted the news of this extreme form of harassment being used on his family shortly after news broke that the peace order against him had been modified, restoring his First Amendment rights. Thankfully, though, Aaron reports that he and his wife are safe.

My wife and I are safe. Will be more details when I can provide it. Wife was very upset dealing with her.—
