Zachary Burgess, a freshman lacrosse player at Auburn, decided to reenact "the video game "Grand Theft Auto" in Baton Rouge this weekend instead of attending the game. Per Deadspin...
quote:

Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning, according to Baton Rouge police, Burgess hopped in the open cab of an idling truck outside a bar, not realizing or not caring that there was a woman in the passenger's seat. He tried to speed off with the woman along for the ride, but ended up ramming into nine different parked cars before the woman was able to jump to safety.

Burgess has been charged with nine counts of hit and run, theft of a motor vehicle, and simple kidnapping. He had a damn good excuse for his actions, though:

During questioning Burgess allegedly told an officer that he “wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.”

I get the feeling there will be quite a few similar stories in the near future.

Now Burgess will "allegedly" see what it's really like to play the video, "Sharing a jail cell with Bubba."
