A 12-year-old who allegedly made prank calls to police sent officers rushing to sites that included the homes of actor Ashton Kutcher and singer Justin Bieber admitted to the allegations in a petition against him in juvenile court, authorities said Monday.

The boy, who is not being identified because of his age, was charged by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office in February with four felony counts of making false bomb threats and computer intrusion.

His admission before Juvenile Court Judge Christina L. Hill on Monday was to two felony counts: making false bomb threats and computer intrusion counts related to “swatting.” A misdemeanor was added to the juvenile petition Monday: falsely reporting an emergency in connection to a call at the home of Bieber.
