Sean O’Malley Gets “Swatted” While Playing Video Games

UFC’s Sean O’Malley has recently been swatted – i.e. raided by police after someone instructed them to do so due to alleged threat…
While playing video games.

He explained what happened during a recent podcast episode:

[I was] streaming, about an hour and a half in I see a f*ckin cop fly down my road.

I feel like instantly I kinda knew because I’ve heard about Adin [Ross] and the big streamers getting swatted.
People find out where they’re at and they call the cops, say something happened that obviously didn’t happen and then they’re f*cking getting swatted.

O’Malley explained further:

So, I peek out my head out the window to see if maybe it’s something else.

But then they’re on the intercom and I see a bunch of cops and they’re, like: “Walk out with your hands up.”

So I f*ckin’ walk out, hands up.
I was, like: “I’m just gonna listen. I could get shot. If I just listen to them, I’ll be alright.”

But you never know, someone sneezes, pulls the trigger.
I got f*ckin shotguns pointed at me. ARs from like four different cops pointed at me.

I was like I’m just gonna listen and walk back.

He was then put into handcuffs:

Put me in the cop car.

I was sitting in the back of that cop car in handcuffs and I was, like: “Dude, that’s crazy. I had freedom five minutes ago. Now I have none. Zero.”

They said I k*lled my parents or something like that, and they thought there was an active shooter inside.

Someone called the cops and said there’s an active shooter, and two dead people in the house or something.
