HOWELL, MI  (WKZO) --    Congressman Mike Rogers may have been “Swatted” over the weekend.  Police, fire and EMT’s turned out in large numbers at his Livingston County home Saturday night after someone pretending to be the Congressman reportedly dialed in a phony 9-1-1 call for help, according to WOOD-TV.

The Congressman thanked the emergency responders for their quick response, saying it was all a prank.

He wouldn’t be the first prominent conservative to be targeted for a “swatting”, although there was no actual SWAT Team on scene Saturday night.   Rogers says it’s a reminder of the real threats that police and fire crews face every day.
