The situation was swiftly diffused once law enforcement learned that it was a big misunderstanding. Eddington explained how the incident went down in a video shared by TMZ.

“I end up walking around to the front of my house and I end up being met by police with guns drawn,” he says. “And another officer came running like, ‘No, no no, this is not how it happened. We kinda heard the conversation and he’s been on the phone the whole time.’ “It was like, ‘We apologize. It seems like you’ve been swatted.’”
