I'm being DDoS'ed please help!

Hello all I'm just trying to reach out and get help because this has been going on for two days, I was online playing the new CoD and I was in a party with some friends and this guy joins the party and just out of nowhere starts arguing with one of my friends and my friend of course like most people argues back and the guy starts threatening to "hit him offline" & at the time there were three people in the party from Oregon and he starts saying where all of us live and our backgrounds like what my moms job was 20 years ago & to be honest that's a little bit intimidating and then a few mins later all three of my friends from OR start lagging and then they go offline, I got upset and called him out on it and he starts arguing with me and then I get put offline, he kept saying multiple times "I'm going to swat you" I have no idea what that means but I'm sure it has something to do with DDoS. I contacted your hotline and the gentlemen told me I should seek help on the forums but to not put the guy who was hitting us offlines gamertag, someone please help. It would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.
