Arrested for Playing ‘Grand Theft Auto’ in Real Life

How did this fruitcake get released? Unreal.
Check it out:

An Auburn University lacrosse player was arrested on Saturday in Louisiana after he “allegedly stole a truck, kidnapped a woman, and hit several parked cars,” before the Auburn-LSU game at Death Valley on Saturday night.

Zachary Burgess, the freshman lacrosse player, also reportedly told an officer that he “wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto.”

Burgess “allegedly struck a total of nine vehicles,” and “was arrested and charged with Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Hit-and-Run (9 counts), and Simple Kidnapping.” He was released on Sunday after posting an $80,000 bond.
