Nicki Minaj has declared triumph after being the victim of a swatting prank.
According to reports, the cops have issued an arrest warrant for the suspect allegedly responsible for the calls.
On Wednesday, the ‘Chun Li’ singer took to social media to call out a lady named Stephanie Bell, whom she accuses of making swatting calls to her San Fernando Valley home.
“Stephanie Bell. A warrant is in the system. Great detective work. So grateful. The DA filed one count for the swatting call and one for the false report to DCFS. To God be the glory.” Nicki said.
According to law enforcement officials, Bell is facing two counts of intentionally reporting a false emergency, and an arrest warrant has been issued for her.
Nicki was reportedly the target of a ‘swatting’ back in June after an anonymous caller falsely reported her 2-year-old son was being molested, and that the singer’s house was on fire.
The suspect allegedly phoned child services, which resulted in the Los Angeles Police Department sheriff’s deputies showing up at Minaj’s California property.
‘Swatting’ is the act of falsely reporting a crime or calling the cops with the goal that a huge police response, or even a S.W.A.T. squad, will arrive at a specified place.
The prank is known for wasting time and resources that could otherwise be utilized to investigate serious crimes.
The mother of one who has been updating fans on the release of her new album ‘Pink Friday 2’ in another post asked the suspect if the swatting calls made to her home were worth it.
“To the woman who made those swatting calls to my home #WasItWorthItDumbo ?”
