CoD-playing teens raided by police

Posted on January 30, 2013 - 6:32pm by Ben Littlejohn

Some teenagers in Sweden were enjoying Call of Duty (presumably Black Ops 2) when one of them died in the game, apparently pretty badly. He dropped to the ground and began to shout "help help help" to emulate his on-screen soldier.

Some neighbors heard the screams and, while the teen's friends knew he was joking, thought the kid was in real danger. Like any good citizen, they called the police.

Ten minutes later the teens were facing down ten police officers, who yelled the kids to put their hands on their heads, leave the apartment, and lie face-down on the ground.

The gamers eventually convinced the police that they were just playing around, and the officers let them back inside to go back to fragging noobs (not a quote).

Have you g1s ever been worried about this? In a day and age with pretty beefy sound systems, this has often been a concern of mine... Let us know in the comments!
