World of Warcraft livestreamer detained by police during livestream


During his livestream last night, Swifty -- a popular World of Warcraft player and livestreamer -- was paid a visit by the police after they received a call regarding "a false accusation that Swifty was threatening someone with a knife." As he was streaming, the officers questioned Swifty, searched his home, and finally detained him for a trip to the station.

This is the second time that Swifty has been the target of what appears to be a remarkably extreme prank caller, and he's understandably more than a little upset. However, it's currently unknown what kind of action -- if any -- Swifty will be taking to catch the perpetrator. You can see the whole hullabaloo for yourself in a recording of the stream past the cut.
