“Last night, while at dinner with my wife, cowards ‘swatted’ my home in Naples,” wrote Sen. Scott.

“These criminals wasted the time & resources of our law enforcement in a sick attempt to terrorize my family,” he continued.

“Ann & I want to thank @NaplesPolice & @CollierSheriff for all they do to keep us safe,” added the Florida lawmaker.

Lt. Bryan McGinn, said, “A security officer was unaware of any calls or issues at the residence upon police arrival. Officers conducted a search of the outside perimeter of the residence and found no signs of forced entry.”

“The events did not occur and the incident was a swatting event, he continued.

Both incidents are under investigation, with authorities emphasizing the serious implications of such false reports.

According to NBC News, “A report associated with the swatting call said a male caller told a dispatcher that he had shot his wife with an AR-15 three times while she was sleeping.”

“My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this,” wrote Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
