Police arrived at Chris Brown’s home on Monday after an anonymous call claimed a mother and father were in a fight and the father had raced to another room in the house for a gun.
The Hollywood Hills address was given to authorities but when police arrived at the home they quickly realized it was not only a false alarm, it was rapper Chris Brown being pranked.
According to the website TMZ, police found no evidence of a gunman or any dispute at Chris Brown’s $1.6 million home.
TMZ reports Chris Brown, 23, was not home at the time.

The incident is apparently the latest in string of so-called “swatting” incidents – when an anonymous tipster calls in a fake report alleging a serious crime – involving celebrities in Los Angeles.
