A 12-year-old was charged in a case of swatting at Ashton Kutcher's Hollywood Hills home.

Little smart-ass. (Normally we'd give a 12-year-old props for making Kutcher's life more difficult. He's such a douche. But swatting is bad for the rest of us -- it drains resources in a city where cops are spread thin).

The swatting, by which cops were told that invaders with guns were at the house, ...

... was reported Oct. 3 at Kutcher's Arrowhead Drive residence.

The L.A. County District Attorney's office today said the 12-year-old, who was not named because he's younger than 18, was charged with ...

... two felony counts each of making false bomb threats and computer intrusion ...

Prosecutors allege he did it one more time:

The second prank call occurred a week later, when police again responded to a Well Fargo Bank on Wilshire on Oct. 10 to learn the emergency was bogus.

The kid was expected to be arraigned tomorrow in Eastlake Juvenile Court.
