After escaping from prison last year and hiding for months, a man in Britain was arrested after leaving the hideout to buy a copy of Call of Dutyonly to be caught by the police in the process.
According to West Midlands Police, 36-year-old Clint Butler, escaped prisoner in Birmingham, dared to buy on January 13 Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War. Butler was hiding from the police, as in November last year he had escaped from HMP Spring Hill Prison in Buckinghamshire, where he was serving a 17-year extended sentence for crimes, including robbery and firearms crimes.
When local police spotted Butler and his friend, the couple changed direction to avoid the cops. This caught the attention of police, who asked Butler what he was doing outside during the pandemic blockade. He replied, “I came to get the new one Call of Duty because I can’t sit in a lock, “West Midlands police reported.
The officers then asked for some details, at which point Butler attacked one of the officers. After the arrest, it was revealed that Butler had given a false name to the police. He received a 13-month sentence for his initial imprisonment and another six months for arguing with police.
Superintendent Nick Rowe of the West Midlands Police Department looked confused as to why Butler even went out to buy the game, saying: to buy the video game will remain a bit of a mystery. “
In the future, for all of you who are trying to avoid the often violent police found around the world, remember that you can always buy games digitally.
