A visit from heavily armed police interrupted a recent stream by professional Counter-strike player Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert.

Watch on YouTube

Gilbert was broadcasting a friendly match with friends when police raided his home, apparently in response to a prank call.

At least one observer managed to capture some of the raid as it happened, so you can watch above.

Gilbert kept his humour over what must have been quite a distressing experience, not to mention inconvenient, and his comments on social networks suggest there have been no serious repurcussions.

Unfortunately, whoever has it in for Gilbert continues to grind their axe in less amusing ways; he has apparently now also suffered DoS attacks.

Pranks are all very well, but when they maliciously impact people’s lives things are getting a bit out of hand, amirite?
