A wanted fugitive in the UK has been arrested after coming out of hiding to purchase a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Police officers in Birmingham, England arrested armed fugitive as he broke blanket to buy Call of Duty: Cold War Black Ops. While the arrest ended in a fierce struggle, none of the officers were seriously injured during the arrest. Cold War Black Ops, the latest game in the hugely popular first-person shooter series, released in November of last year.
While video games can be an unparalleled source of entertainment and enjoyment, the industry also has its fair share of immoral activities. Just recently, a Japanese man was arrested after sending 37 death threats to video game publisher Square Enix. The man, Toshiyuki Kan, was reportedly enraged by his experience with the game Enix Quest Dragon Quest of the Stars. Kan’s death threats were the latest in a series of incidents in which players sent threats to Square Enix offices over a negative reaction to the publisher’s games.
According to ABC NewsTwitter Birmingham, England Police Arrest Fugitive After Breaking COVID-19 Quarantine To Go Buy Call of Duty: Cold War Black Ops. Police approached two men due to suspicious behavior and asked for their information after their video game explanation did not justify breaking quarantine. After giving a false name, one of the men attacked the officers, which led to a fight before the officers detained him. It was later discovered that the offender was Clint Butler, an armed fugitive who had escaped a 17-year prison sentence. Butler was then returned to prison with an additional sentence for assault and flight from justice.
Unfortunately the Call of Duty The series has had a recent history of tragic headlines. Last month a 19 year old Call of Duty Mobile Esports player Ingrid Oliveira Bueno has been murdered by another Brazilian player. The premeditated murder shocked the esports community and led to further discussion of violence against women in the country. The killer, Guilherme Alves Costa, was arrested after recording the murder and sending it to the eSports organization via WhatsApp. Most recently, an all-female United States Navy woman Call of Duty Warzone stream, dubbed the “Women of the War Zone,” has been spammed with fire and bomb emojis. The spam was intended to acknowledge and protest the recent US military bombings in the Middle East after the stream’s text chat was turned off.
The Call of Duty The series is massively popular around the world, and it’s played by all kinds of people. Clint Butler’s dedication to the franchise, however, ultimately cost him his freedom. The armed robbery and prison escape is no laughing matter, but Butler’s boredom after a COVID-19 quarantine has always pushed him to take cover and expose himself to justice.
