TMZ is reporting that Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. fell prey to a swatting phone call last week at his home in Miami--the second one in almost 2 years.

In case you DIDN'T know, "swatting" is where someone phones in a hoax shooting at a private residence, and police send in a swat team to raid it.

The phantom caller reported that a man had been shot at Wayne's home, and was bleeding; when police arrived around 3 PM, they entered through an unlock door, and found the rapper sleeping.

Mr. Carter OK'd the police having their K-9 unit do a search, and reportedly got pissed, saying, "I'm tired of this shit...take me to jail."

:(

Miami police then cuffed him, before letting him go after realizing the whole thing had been fake.

Swatting is apparently a trend; earlier this year, the cinematographer of the now legendary "Damn Daniel" viral video had his California home swatted.

Kids these days! Just prank call QVC like I did.
