CBS receives prank call during Christopher Dorner coverage

These scans show a 62-year-old man with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, at left in December 2015, and three months after treatment with Kite Pharma's experimental gene therapy at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. The treatment, called CAR-T cell therapy, turns a patient's own blood cells into specialized cancer killers. It worked in a study, with more than one third of very sick lymphoma patients showing no sign of disease six months after a single treatment, its maker said Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017. The scans are from a presentation by Drs. Fred Locke and Sattva Neelapu, provided by the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Kite. (ASBMT/Kite Pharma via AP)

Breaking news is always a tricky situation, but prank callers certainly don’t help.

CBS Los Angeles learned that lesson the hard way during their coverage of the shootout between ex-Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner and law enforcement agencies.

In the call, a man who identifies himself as Captain Janks pretended to be a California Fish & Game official and said his agency was the first to spot Dorner, but then things went a bit astray.
