George Washington University law professor and Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley was reportedly swatted on Friday evening.

Turley confirmed the news to The New York Post, saying the incident is a “manifestation of our age of rage.” Swatting is a crime that targets individuals by making false police reports for a violent crime. The prank caller falsely reports major crimes that would require a significant number of law enforcement officers to respond to the target’s home.

“Yes, I was swatted this evening. It is regrettably a manifestation of our age of rage,” Turley said in a statement on Friday. “However, we are grateful to the Fairfax police officers who were highly professional and supportive in responding to this harassment.”

According to The Post, Law enforcement responded to Turley’s Fairfax County home after an individual placed a bogus emergency report that was shot at Turley’s house.

The law professor, in an interview on Fox News, spoke out against swatting one day before he fell victim to the illegal prank.

“Swatting constitutes a false police report that can be criminally charged,” Turley said. “Virginia recently passed a new law making swatting specifically a criminal misdemeanor. It can also be charged as a form of criminal threat. This is a crime that flourishes because there is insufficient deterrent. The anonymity and rare prosecutions combine to fuel this form of criminal harassment. There is no mystery to how to address these crimes. There must be greater detection and penalties to achieve deterrence.”

Turley’s ordeal comes after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) fell victim to the illegal prank on Christmas day. The GOP lawmaker revealed that the Christmas day incident was the 8th time she has fallen victim to swatting.

“I was just swatted. This is like the 8th time. On Christmas with my family here. My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn’t have to deal with this. I appreciate them so much and my family and I are in joyous spirits celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!” Greene wrote in X.
