You kinda have to wonder if he called it in on himself for more media attention…
Swatting is when a prank call is made to induce a large response from law enforcement to an address.
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – The family of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg was “swatted” Tuesday morning, prompting deputies to respond to their Parkland home.
A call came into the Broward Sheriff’s Office claiming a hostage situation at the home.
Coral Springs Fire Rescue arrived at the scene to find there was no hostage situation and the call was a prank.
Hogg was not home at the time of the incident and is currently in Washington with his mother to accept the RFK Human Rights award.
In a phone call with Local 10 News, Hogg sounded off on the massive law enforcement presence at his home after the prank call.
Hogg said he found out about the swatting incident through a phone call from a friend.
Sky 10 was over the home as units were staged outside as a precaution. BSO deputies and a BSO helicopter swarmed the neighborhood.
Swatting is the action of making a prank emergency call to bring about a response of armed law enforcement officers.
Neighbors who spoke to Local 10 News reporter Alex Finnie said the incident put them on edge.
