LAPD called to Kim Kardashian's home over job snafu

Kim Kardashian

Los Angeles Police Department officers briefly detained a man outside Kim Kardashian's home Sunday after a misunderstanding over a job the man thought he had with the reality TV star.

LAPD officials said the man flew in from North Carolina, mistakenly believing he had a producing job lined up with Kardashian. When he arrived at her house, those inside said there was no job and called police, according to a law enforcement source.

LAPD officers arrived at the home near Beverly Hills and found the man with his luggage outside Kardashian's home.

The officers determined he was not a threat to anyone and gave him a ride back to the airport, where he planned to go back home to North Carolina.

Officials said they are not sure how the misunderstanding over the job occurred.
