Another streamer falls victim to a prank involving having members of the police force storm his home. During the course of his Twitch stream, Jonathan Peters, US Air Force veteran, and Runescape player, gets an uninvited visit from a SWAT team due to a dangerous prank pulled off by possibly one of his viewers.

Peters, or Koopatroopa787, stated:

“I see you posting my address, I had police point a gun at my little brothers because of you. They could have been shot, they could have died because you chose to SWAT my stream. I don’t give a s*** about what you have against me, or what I did to you. For that, I am at a loss for words. Your gripe is with me so let it be with me and do not involve my family in any way, shape or form with this. They don’t deserve that.”

Jonathan Peters said that he had no knowledge of someone having any form of anger towards him, and states that what happened to him, can also happen to anybody. You can watch the video of the SWAT raid by clicking this link: SWAT Raid caught on Twitch

And with that we also advise any live streamer to be extra cautious, especially when revealing personal information, as to help reduce or stop these types of incidents.
