Angels outfielder Torii Hunter was at home this afternoon when his security alarm went off. The police responded to the alarm, but when they got to Hunter’s home, they didn’t believe he lived there. That’s when the cops drew their guns on Hunter.

Hunter explained the story in a series of tweets:

My alarm went off in my house while I was in it. 20mins later I saw cops checking out the scene. Went outside and they drew there guns on me. They didn’t believe I lived here in Newport coast so they walked me upstairs at gunpoint to get my ID. When I showed him my ID, he said I’m an angel fan hope u guys have a great season. ARE U KIDDING ME!!!!!! Lol

Then once people had time to soak in the info, Hunter said this:

Hey Twitterland! I’m not upset that the cops did their job today. I’m actually glad they were protecting home. It was my fault that the alarm went off anyways. I just thought it was cool to let u guys know my awkward moment for today. The cops that were here today had there guns drawn but pointed downward in for safety. Those guys handled the situation like trained cops.
