Man Tries to Rob Store With Game Controller

Crime 3

Not understanding that the attack button only works while playing a game, not real life, Cameron Pittman tried to rob a Subway restaurant with a Playstation controller. Pittman was arrested by police who happened to walk in during the robbery, and was forced to start the level over.

So much for the successful self-regulation of the video game industry. By the way, I like it that you'ved dubbed this a moldy peaches attack.

Pittman used game to real life imaginary transformation.
Apparently, it's not as effective as he was led to believe.

"Pittman was suspected in an earlier robbery at a Subway restaurant."
"Sun Food Store on 62nd Avenue S" is what he tried to rob with the game controller, article doesn't say what he robbed the subway with.
Come on, the article is about 10 lines, you couldn't even get that right?
