Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse over on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
But that wasn't the case!
Police raided Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills home on Thursday after a 911 call reported an armed gunman in the home.
But when the long arm of the law showed up, there was no gunman, no victim, and no Tom - he wasn't even home!
The prank, which has become known as "swatting", is simply calling in a false report about a house to get it raided by police.
It's also a crime!
The real victims are the police, whose time is wasted, and all the real victims they could have been helping!
But these pranksters will learn soon - the cops don't like when you waste their time. One day soon, the raid will hit someone else's house - and he won't find it very funny!
