After being escaped from prison last year and hiding for months, a man in the UK was arrested after trying to buy a copy of Call of Duty: the agents stopped him for violating the lockdown.
According to the West Midlands Police, 36-year-old Clint Butler, a prisoner escaped from Birmingham jail, he came out of his hiding place on January 13 to purchase a copy of Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War. Butler had been in hiding from the police since in November last year he escaped from HMP Spring Hill Prison, located in Buckinghamshire, where he was serving a 17-year sentence for crimes including robbery and firearm offenses. When the local police have identified Butler and his friend, the two changed direction to avoid the cops. This caught the attention of the police, who asked Butler what he was doing around during the lockdown induced by the pandemic. He replied: “I came to get the new Call of Duty because I’m getting bored at home, I have nothing to do, ”reports the West Midlands police report.
Agents have therefore asked the man for the documents and at which point Butler attacked one of the officers. After he was arrested, it emerged that Butler had given the police a false name. Has received a further 13-month sentence for his escape and another six months for the altercation with the police. The superintendent Nick Rowe of the West Midlands Police seemed confused as to why Butler had gone out to buy the game, saying, “Why he decided to risk being put back in prison. making the idiotic decision to come to town with a friend during the lockdown to buy a video game will remain a bit of a mystery ”.
