Cops Raid Gamer Live On Twitch

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."



Probably not the best time to have "TERRORISTS WIN" on your screen..
