World of Warcraft player gets detained by police while livestreaming

Well, you don't see this every day. World of Warcraft broadcaster Swifty was detained by police and taken downtown to file some papers in the middle of his livestream.

Details are a bit scarce at this moment, but it's believed that someone -- presumably one of his half-million subscribers on YouTube -- called the cops, claiming Swifty was threatening someone with a knife. Police allegedly showed up to his house -- though we never actually see them -- and searched his home, eventually detaining him for questioning.

The authenticity of the video is being questioned by some who believe this is a publicity stunt for the livestreamer who was also the victim of another prank prior to this. I have my skepticisim as some of it does seem scripted, but either way, it's an entertaining video. Unless, of course, you are Swifty and really did get arrested. In that case, this video probably sucks.
