Teen Who Posted Viral Video Victim Of Swatting

The saddest thing about this story? It's not the fact that someone could have been shot and killed. It's not that valuable police resources are being wasted. It the last sentence in the article that states "making a hoax call to police is a misdemeanor that can carry a sentence of up to a year in prison." Really? That's it?!? frown

The teenager who filmed the viral "Damn Daniel" video and posted the clip on Twitter was the victim of a bogus emergency call that prompted police to swarm his family's Riverside home. Police responded around 1 a.m. Tuesday after they received reports that someone at a residence on Hamilton Drive had shot their mother with an AK-47.
