Rep. Tom Emmer ‘swatted’ in Delano last weekend

Wright County Sheriff’s Office responded Saturday, Jan. 27 to a “swatting” at Rep. Tom Emmer’s Delano house.

Deputies responded to Emmer’s house at 6:07 p.m. after they received a phone call about a possible homicide and hostage situation reportedly happening at the home, according to the Wright County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies checked the house and contacted Emmer and his security detail from the U.S. Capitol Police, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Authorities determined the report was “unfounded” and believed it was an instance of “swatting.”

“Swatting” is a form of harassment. It happens when someone calls authorities and reports a fake crime or emergency to draw a large response from law enforcement, according to the FBI.
