Angels outfielder Torii Hunter Tweeted this afternoon that Newport Beach police responded to a burglar alarm at his Newport Coast home — drawing guns on him until he produced identification.

Police spokeswoman Kathy Lowe confirmed that police responded to an alarm call at his residence about 2:45 p.m.

“Officers made contact with the resident at the location and cleared the call ‘unfounded,’” Lowe said in an email.

Hunter used a series of Tweets to describe the incident.

“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”

In subsequent Tweets, Hunter praised his security system and the police.

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