Police told Fox News that on Saturday at 11:53 p.m., officers responded to a call from a male who claimed to have shot his girlfriend with a high-powered rifle and alleged that he had planted two bombs in and around Kimmel’s rental home in Hermosa Beach, Calif., and was waiting for officers to show up.

Hermosa Beach police arrived to find an idling, unoccupied pickup truck in the driveway and “in an abundance of caution” squared the area off and evacuated neighbors.

Officers claimed they attempted to contact the person allegedly staying in the house, chef and Kimmel’s pal Lang, for several hours, but couldn’t get a hold of him.

When they finally got him on the phone, he reportedly exited the property and was taken into custody without incident.

Police assure that no explosives, weapons or any evidence of a shooting were found at the residence.

A rep for Kimmel told TMZ that they believed the incident was an extreme case of swatting, and Lang’s lawyer refuted all claims of his client’s alleged wrongdoing.

“The ‘male’ that called 911 was absolutely not Adam Perry Lang,” attorney Glen T. Jonas told TMZ. “Mr. Lang will be cleared of any wrongdoing. He was fast asleep with his ringer off. He immediately cooperated once he was notified of the commotion.”

The commotion allegedly included police helicopters and drones around the residence and police reportedly took eight hours to establish contact with Lang.
