"Armed police stormed pop star Miley Cyrus's house in the US, after receiving an emergency call about a possible kidnapping and shooting. Los Angeles police and rescue crews surrounded the fomer Hannah Montana star's house in Hollywood on Wednesday, while helicopters circled the property. But they soon discovered there was no one in the building. Police say the incident may have been part of a trend of prank calls, which has been dubbed swatting. Swatting is when an anonymous call is made to get a team of police to storm a building or an innocent person's home." - Armed police storm Miley Cyrus's house, BBC website, 3 August 2012.
