LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles was evacuated last night during a performance by fouseyTUBE because of what may have been a “SWAT-ing.”

The show, which apparently only held about 1,500 people, was evacuated because of a bomb threat.  FouseyTUBE is a YouTube personality, real name Yousef Erakat.

Early indications were that the incident was a case of SWAT-ing, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.  SWAT-ing is a prank usually initiated by gamers to bother each other by calling in a SWAT team to a person’s home as they’re playing a video game.

This is the third evacuation of a Griffith Park site in the last few weeks and the second this weekend involving a bomb threat, according to Deadline Hollywood.
