Cops were called to the Playboy Mansion this morning to investigate an alleged assault, but when they arrived, they found nothing out of the ordinary at all. In fact, the first responders on the scene quickly became convinced they had another incident of Swatting on their hands and even told members of the media as much, but upon further review, that’s apparently not what happened at all.

According to TMZ, the police officers were eventually able to find the actual caller, and they think the unnamed individual may have actually thought an assault was happening when the 911 call was placed, which is decidedly different than the Swatting pranks which involve someone from a second location making up a story to attract as many officers as possible. In fact, only two squad cars showed up to the Mansion this morning because the incident was only described as a singular assault.

Hopefully, this was all one big misunderstanding with an unnecessary 911 call, and there wasn’t any real assault or threat of an assault that the parties lied about to police. Luckily, at this point, there’s no reason think it wasn’t a case of the former.

Given the number of people living in Los Angeles County, it makes sense resources would occasionally be wasted on calls that didn’t really need a police response. It’s the ones that are specifically conceived to waste resources that need to be kept in check.
