Lomorin Sars, a 31 year old Colorado resident was arrested on Nov. 9, 2011 for allegedly threatening to blow up a Best Buy when he was told it was sold out of the new release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Denver’s KUSA-TV quotes police in Aurora as saying Lomorin Sar became angry with the customer service desk shortly after midnight Tuesday when he was told the video game he allegedly pre-ordered earlier in the day was no longer in stock.
Witnesses say Sar threatened store workers, asking when they were leaving and allegedly saying he would shoot them in the parking lot. Sar allegedly also told employees he would blow up the store. Should’ve gotten Battlefield 3 instead 😉
This is not the first alleged crime involving the popular video game.
Over the weekend in France, men used tear gas to rob a delivery truck carrying 6,000 copies of the game. That shipment was worth more than $500,000.
Talk about crazy. These people are playing too much war games to even fight or kill for it in real life. Time to put down the remote control and enjoy life a little. You’re on this planet for a short amount of time so make it count.
