Quentin Tarantino called the cops to his Los Angeles home just days before he fired up an anti-cop rally when he labeled police as “murderers.” (RELATED: Quentin Tarantino Calls Cops ‘Murderers’ At Anti-Police Rally)

The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call at the director’s home after he found an intruder in his back yard. Tarantino told the man to leave, and he called the cops after the intruder wouldn’t.

TMZ reports that the cops arrived minutes later and “talked to the man without incident.” (RELATED: Tarantino: I Have To Call Murderers Murderers)

This was 13 days before Tarantino attended an anti-police brutality rally in Washington Square Park in New York City.

“When I see murders, I do not stand by,” Tarantino said. “I have to call a murder a murder and I have to call the murderers the murderers.” (RELATED: Jamie Foxx Backs Quentin Tarantino’s Anti-Police Comments)

“I’m a human being with a conscience. And if you believe there’s murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.” (RELATED: Quentin Tarantino Backtracks: ‘All Cops Are Not Murderers’)

An insider at the LAPD told TMZ that although they think Tarantino is “an ass,” they will continue to respond to calls at his home.
