The prank of “swatting” making an anonymous call to the cops, providing them with a false tip, and ending up with officers showing up at an innocent persons’ home . . . all in the name of fun. This most recent one happened to a vlogger named Whiteboy7thst, real name Alexander Wachs, and did not end well. Here’s more from BuzzFeed (video below):
The video . . . shows Wachs playing Day Z until he has to suddenly log out and rush away from his computer. Next we see a police officer and a police dog seemingly searching Wach’s residence. And that’s it—Whiteboy7thst never returned to his stream. According to the summary, Wachs was charged with felony cannabis possession—between 30 and 500 grams. It seems that in the process of searching Wachs’ residence for a bomb, Will County police found his stash of pot. Per Veridite, he has hearing set for 1:30 pm today.
Not cool bro.
