Police pull their guns on Torii Hunter

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter had a pretty harrowing experience while at home. Police responded to an alarm at Hunter's home and the end result was Hunter having to ID himself while the cops had their guns drawn.

Hunter responded to the incident via Twitter and was initially excited by the whole incident, but to his credit didn't make a big deal out of it.

“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,” his first Tweet said. “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”

Hunter later praised the cops for doing their job.

“The police departmen did a great job of protecting my home. Thanks guys!” he wrote.

I do give Hunter credit for not being too bent out of shape about it.

Then he autographed their balls. But, it probably hurt.
