Ashton Kutcher and the LAPD have been punk’d.
According to TMZ, members of the LAPD headed to the Two and a Half Men star’s home today after someone claiming to be locked in a bathroom sent a teletext message (as if from a deaf person) to report a “home invasion robbery with shots fired.” The alleged perps? Armed Russian men.
The police reportedly detained three guys who were on the property (they were just innocent workers), but the cops never located the mysterious sender.
Now a confirmed false alarm, this incident is the latest “swatting” prank to hit Hollywood. Two and a Half Men guest star Miley Cyrus fell victim to the same stunt in early August, when someone called 911 to report a kidnapping in progress at her L.A. pad.
Like Miley, Ashton wasn’t home when the cops arrived.
