Police in Missouri have arrested a teenager after they say he tried to rob a man of his recently purchased copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Police say a 27-year-old man had just returned home from picking up his reserved copy of Call of Duty when an SUV pulled up behind him in the parking lot and a man got out with a gun.
The victim told police that the armed man demanded he hand over his new video game, warning him that he had “racked a round.” The victim decided the man could have his copy of Call of Duty when he pried it from his cold, dead, Dorito smelling fingers and refused to hand it over.
A struggle for the gun ensued in which one shot was fired. Luckily no one was hurt and the robber left the scene while the victim called police with a description of his attacker and the vehicle he drove off in.
Using this info, police went back to the Game Stop where the victim had picked up his game and wouldn’t you know it, a vehicle matching the description of their suspect’s was sitting in the parking lot. Police took 18-year-old David Morales into custody and charged him with attempted first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.
I don’t know who’s dumber, the teen who risked 15 years in prison for a copy of Call of Duty and lost, or the man who risked his life for a copy of Call of Duty and won. I think it’s a draw.Tags: Armed Robbery, Call of Duty, Crime, David Morales, gun, Missouri, Video game
