Actor Eddie Kaye Thomas, best known as Finch in the “American Pie” movies, had a bit of a scare Wednesday (April 17), when a SWAT team had to be called to his house because a female houseguest was allegedly threatening him with a knife.
According to TMZ, the two were arguing and the woman grabbed a kitchen knife and threatened the actor, so he ran outside and called the police. There was a stand-off between the responding SWAT team and the woman for a couple of hours, until the woman was forced out with tear gas and taken into custody.
Law enforcement sources further tell TMZ that Thomas met the woman the night before at Mel’s Diner, a Hollywood landmark restaurant, and brought her back to his Hollywood Hills home. During the standout, the woman allegedly smashed a phone and a guitar, trashing the house before the police took her into custody.
At least the SWAT team came — with the rash of celebrity “swatting” pranks, it’s a wonder they haven’t gone all “boy who cried wolf” on celebs.
