Police Draw Guns on Torii Hunter at Home: Torii Hunter had an unexpected guest after the Los Angeles Angels' final exhibition game Wednesday. Cops showed up with guns drawn after he accidentally triggered his alarm and his wife couldn't be reached by phone. "They didn't believe I lived here in Newport coast so they walked me upstairs at gunpoint to get my ID," he said on Twitter.

Hunter later explained his choice of words (gun point) was inaccurate, and that the guns were not actually pointed at him (down by their sides).

This is pretty much a non-story, as the cops did what they were supposed to do, as the response "No, it's cool. I live here!" is probably the response given by most burglars that are caught at the scene.

As a Rangers fan, I would've appreciated it if Hunter was detained for a few weeks while DNA tests were performed to verify his identity. And that Albert guy needs to be checked out as well.
