Boy admits Kutcher prank -- yes, a 12-year-old boy admitted to a prank that sent cops to Ashton Kutcher's house. On March 11, ABC News reported that the boy called 911 with a "bomb threat" that wasn't real. His identity is being kept private because of his age, but he will face charges.
"Prosecutors say the boy is also accused of making false 911 calls involving Justin Bieber's house and a bank. Those charges will likely be dismissed, but the district attorney's office says the allegations will be considered when the boy is sentenced," ABC News reported.
The boy admits to the Kutcher prank and other pranks as well. His calls were part of an illegal hobby called "swatting" which involves tricking emergency services to respond to a fake emergency. Plenty of celebrities have been pranked in this way. Tom Cruise, Kris Jenner, and Justin Bieber have all been victims of "swatting" -- some of them thanks to the boy who admitted to the Kutcher prank.
It is hard to believe that a child (not even a teenager) was responsible for these pranks. It is unknown why he did it (probably because he thought that it was funny), but he will pay for his bad decisions.
While this boy admits to the Kutcher prank, there are thought to be other people out there who are "swatting" celebrities.
