GLOUCESTER COUNTY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A southern New Jersey lawmaker who is trying to fight prank calls known as swatting suddenly found himself facing a line of police guns over the weekend.
As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, Assemblyman Paul Moriarty was sitting in his Gloucester County home Saturday afternoon when he suddenly got a call from police.
“They asked me if everything’s OK at my house. I say, yeah why? They said, ‘because we have a report of a shooting at your house,'” Moriarty said.
