    Yikes.

    Call Of Duty Game Leads To Prank Lewisville 911 Call (dfw.cbslocal.com)

    The first responding officers saw no signs of shooting at the home. The video game was still on when police surrounded the house, with the entire family inside.

    The teen said it was his parents who first noticed men real men outside with real guns, and someone with a bull horn, calling his name.

    Crazy. You'd think they would have checked out the info first, or asked questions before jumping to SWAT.

    Another reason that kids should not be playing these games. This game is rated 18+ or MA.

    The cops never bother my kids when they are playing Mario Kart and Just Dance (although... trust me... some of their dancing skills should be illegal. )
