GTA 5 Voice Actor Ned Luke Experiences ‘Swatting’ Incident During YouTube Stream

In the past few weeks, Ned Luke, the voice actor behind Michael De Santa in Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5), has endured several instances of ‘swatting’ while streaming gameplay on YouTube. For those unfamiliar with the term, swatting refers to a malicious individual making a false report to law enforcement agencies, claiming that a serious situation is taking place at a given location. The goal is to provoke an aggressive police response.
