Well the economy is apparently worse than everyone thought, we live in a world where people are taking hostages for gaming consoles. One Las Vegas woman found out exactly how dangerous gamers can be.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, Christopher Hunter and Rosa Garcia allegedly kidnapped a 30-year-old woman and hold her hostage for over six hours. It wasn't money these thugs were looking to gain, but rather a Playstation gaming system.
The evil gamer nerds are accused of shaving the woman's head, forcing her to drink alcohol and take strange pills. They even threatened to "get someone with AIDS to have sex with her."
The 30-year-old woman told police Garcia later threatened to "cut her head off and show it to her children."
Things sure have gotten harder now that we can't rent consoles at the video store anymore. Maybe we need our to get our arcades back.
Hunter and Garcia were indicted on kidnapping, assault and battery charges. They never did get their Playstation.
