12-Year-Old Ashton Kutcher Swatter Admits Guilt
Prosecutors say the boy has taken responsibility for calling in a false bomb threat that drew police to the actor's home.
Prosecutors say that a 12-year-old boy has admitted to placing a fake 911 call to lure police to Ashton Kutcher's home.
The Southern California boy, who was arrested in December, has admitted to making a false bomb threat and computer intrusion, the Associated Press reports. He additionally is accused of making similarly false calls involving Justin Bieber's home and a bank, and while those charges are likely to be dropped, the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office says that the allegations will be considered in the boy's sentencing.
The calls in question were among a rash of recent pranks targeting stars in the Los Angeles area, including Miley Cyrus, Tom Cruise and Simon Cowell. The practice, known as "swatting," is designed with the intent of drawing large police responses, including specialized SWAT teams, to a designated location.
The 12-year-old boy's identity has not been revealed.
