Police were called to Paris Hilton's Los Angeles home on Saturday in response to an apparent prank call.
Officers rushed to the socialite's property after a 911 call suggested an emergency there, but when they arrived at the house, they found nothing wrong.
Editors at TMZ.com report Hilton was the latest victim of a "swatting" prank, in which callers phone in fake crimes to elicit an urgent police response.
Hilton appears to have escaped all the drama -- she took to her Twitter page on Saturday to reveal she was partying in Miami.
Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber are among the stars who have fallen victim to swatting in recent months.
In February, a 12-year-old boy was charged in connection to a false emergency call that sparked the police raid on Kutcher's L.A. home in October 2012 and has since admitted wasting the authorities' time.
