A 30-year old man suspected of stealing an SUV was arrested by police in his home while playing Grand Theft Auto III.
Tampa Bay Online has the story on Michael Ray Ekes of Haines City, Florida, who was busted after the stolen vehicle was found in front of his home. For some reason Ekes was asked what he thought of GTA III. The suspect replied, “It’s a blast.”
Sheriff Grady Judd offered the pearl of wisdom that, “Crime is not a game.” He continued, “Real-life crime has real-life consequences – and I hope he goes to prison for a good long while, where they don't have 'Grand Theft Auto' video games.”
At the time of his arrest, Ekes was free on bail on two counts of grand theft auto and was on probation for a series of other offenses.
