CBS news anchor, Sandra Mitchell, was crank called by a prankster who claimed to be an official from Fish and Game during the network's coverage of the Chris Dorner shootout, which is currently ongoing in Big Bear, California.
The crank caller said that it was Ronnie the Limo Driver who had shot at Dorner. Mitchell attempted to clarify the statement, to which the prankster replied:
...you're a real dumbass, you still don't know this is a prank?
Ronnie the Limo Driver, real name Ronnie Mund, is a character on Howard Stern's radio show, and thanks to the incident has now begun trending on Twitter. Mund is Stern's limo driver and head of security, known as the oldest one of Stern's characters.
Quite how CBS allowed the pranksters on air we still don't know. The incident provided some levity into what is an intense situation.
This is the man who is claiming responsibility for the attack:
