Actress Alyssa Milano, a vocal Defund the Police advocate, called the police Sunday — via her husband — when she thought an armed man was on her property in Bell Canyon, California.

According to photos obtained by Daily Mail, seven Ventura County Sherriff’s vehicles responded, along with a K-9 unit, the Los Angeles Fire Department and a helicopter.

 

The 8,000 square ft. home features five bedrooms and six bathrooms, and is worth $2.5 million, according to Fox News.

“We first noticed the helicopter circling overhead very low and knew something was going on, it’s usually such a quiet community,” a neighbor told the British newspaper. “Then we saw all the police cars parked in front of Alyssa’s home. They had their guns at the ready and seemed very serious.”

Another neighbor took exception to Milano’s efforts to defund the police.

“She can tweet those things because at the end of the day she lives behind gates in a gated community. She knows the police will come to save her,” the neighbor told the Daily Mail. “But what about all those people who don’t have that luxury and live in unsafe neighborhoods? She obviously doesn’t care.”

One such tweet is seen here, as Milano shared a video of John Oliver explaining that “defunding” police means shifting money to mental health services and community efforts, not eliminating police altogether.

That same month, Milano publicly pushed for a $150 million budget cut for the Los Angeles Police Department, WRVA reported.

Milano released an online statement to counter “rightwing media & trolls,” saying a neighbor called 911.

A spokesperson for the Ventura County Sherriff’s Office told Fox News they received several calls from the area and that the initial call came from someone “not related to Alyssa Milano.”

But the actress confirmed that her husband, talent agent David Bugliari, did call 911 after the neighbor — to “check on when police would be arriving.”

A few minutes later, Milano responded to a social media user to say she “never called the police.”

Milano said the family “sheltered in place” while police determined what was going on — which apparently turned out not to be a “man,” but a teen hunting squirrels with an air gun.

“These are exactly the type of situations that police officers are trained for and should be responding to, and we will always support police having the resources they need for appropriate policing actions,” she said in the release. “We’d love to see equally trained non-police professionals respond to addiction and mental health crises and non-violent events so that these brave officers can do the jobs they are so good at handling, as they demonstrated this weekend.”

As might be expected, the raging liberal played the victim when she was called out for her hypocrisy:

Here’s a sampling of some of the responses to the story from Twitter, beginning with a tweet from actor Scott Baio:
