Burglars Apprehended By Grand Theft Auto
from the who-said-GTA-was-a-bad-influence? dept
There are all these concerned adults who keep worrying about the impact the various Grand Theft Auto games have on kids. Well, three kids are pretty damn happy about the impact the game had on them earlier this year. Apparently, the kids were playing the game while visiting their grandmother, when some armed burglars broke into the home. Within the game, the audio track included the phrase: "Stop, we have you surrounded. This is the police." The burglars -- apparently not avid video gamers themselves -- thought they were really surrounded by the police. They ran, but were eventually caught, and most were just sentenced.
