A Counter-Strike player found himself having to deal with more than just digital bomb recently, thanks to a prankster that called the police on his house — a practice commonly known as “swatting”.
The player in question is Jordan Gilbert of n0thingtv. While the clip above shows the most relevant bit, you can see the lead-up and aftermath of the raid in the actual Twitch stream around the 1:44:00 mark.
I can’t get over the fact that the cops just bring a bunch of grenades into the room, and then they leave them on Gilbert’s bed — nevermind the assault rifles. EDIT: It looks like these were his headphones on his bed. That’s swatting for you — someone decides it would be hilarious to call the cops on another player, often by warning the police of a bombing or something, and then stuff like this happens. Really mature!
Don’t worry, nothing bad happened to Gilbert — he returns to his seat around the 1:56:00 mark on the Twitch stream. “It’s all good,” he reassured his viewers. “Got a good understanding with the police station now.”
