Default Teen Blames Theft Spree On Game

Teen Blames Theft Spree On Video Game

Police Say 19-Year-Old Says Committing Crimes Was Fun

Posted: 10:30 a.m. EST November 14, 2002

KENOSHA, Wis. -- Blame it on the video game.

A Wisconsin teen has told police the video game "Grand Theft Auto" inspired him to go steal cars.

The 19-year-old, Micah Zoerner, is charged with numerous counts of theft, burglary and auto theft involving about 100 vehicles. Two other teens were caught as well but have not been charged.

The teen was caught last week when police allegedly saw him breaking into vehicles at an apartment complex. Detectives said he told them he was inspired by the video game -- in which characters steal cars from parking garages and other areas.

A local town's police chief said the teen said actually going out and committing the crimes was "fun." The chief said he hopes the teen will rethink the meaning of the word.

*******************************

I did seem like its been a little to long a video game was blamed for something. Even though we all know the kid knew that this would be a good excuse.

About 15 years ago I saw this weird movie called The Terminator. In it a guy (who's supposed to be a death robot from the future) walks through a polics station, murdering all of the cops there. So naturally I had to run out and do the same thing! not.

People will always claim some stupid shit reason for committing their crimes, who cares. But the media apparantly loves this crap 'cuz they'll always report on it. I'm just glad that this "teen" is legally an "adult" so he can do some hard time for his crime.

was it fun.. OMG it was so much fun I got carried away with it.

I went out and got a fake ID so I could get into bars and
Oh man was I ready. I went up to these old women (I was 15, 25 was old att)
And used all the pick-up lines I learned from the game.
They got Pissed at me. I couldn't understand it. Hell it was fun

why didn't the teen just blame it on his little brother like all the people in the scammer section?
