Colorado Man Threatens to Blow Up Best Buy over Modern Warfare 3 Pre-Order Problems

November 9, 2011 -

A man threatened to blow up his local game store yesterday after they informed him that they had sold out of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, according to police in Aurora, Colorado. Aurora Police Det. Bob Friel said that 31-year-old Lomorin Sar was arrested early Tuesday morning after he threatened the employees at the Best Buy at North Salida Court.

Witnesses told police that the man became irate with the customer service department after Midnight on Tuesday after they told him the game he allegedly pre-ordered was out of stock. Sar allegedly threatened employees, asking several of them "when they were leaving" and that he would "shoot them in the parking lot." Sar also allegedly said something about "blowing up the store."

After he left the store, employees called the police. He was pulled over and taken into custody shortly thereafter.

"Investigating officers issued a criminal summons to a man who threatened to carry out his own version of modern warfare at the electronics store. Fortunately, this situation did not end in violence," Friel told news channel KUSA-TV.

Sar was issued a summons for disorderly conduct. His court date was not revealed. Sar did not respond to the local news station's request for comments.

Sheesh! Has he even looked at the reviews? (well, the ones who weren't bribed to the stratosphere by Activision at any rate) The game just isn't worth jail time.
