The suspect who has been arrested for doing prank 911 calls claiming there was gun violence at the homes of Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber is actually only 12 years old. The boy lives in California with his mother in what is being described as an “incredibly dysfunctional” environment.
TMZ reports that the 12-year-old refuses to go to school and spends all of his time on his computer talking with other hackers. Child services has been called to the home several times, and now law enforcement officials are doing their best to try to put him in a stable foster care environment. The sources also say that authorities are trying to push for the boy to get counseling instead of being punished, though the Los Angeles County District Attorney has yet to make a final decision.
“It’s currently still under investigation; our detectives are in contact with the LAPD detectives in regard to their arrest,” Beverly Hills Police Lieutenant Lincoln Hoshino tells The San Jose Mercury News.
