Robbers Scared by GTA: “HellSpam writes ‘Some robbers tried to burglarize a poor old lady and her 3 grandsons. Her grandsons happened to be playing Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas, and the sounds of the police from the game scared them away! From the article: ‘The police in the game were saying, ‘Stop, we have you surrounded. This is the police.’ The burglar, unknowingly, thought this was the actual police and panicked … being apprehended by Playstation.’ Now, no more saying games are bad for you…'”
accidents will happen. though this sounds suspiciously like urban myth.
