Yes, I know that is Lindsay Lohan in the picture and no she is not the one who made the call. A Boston mother recently called 911 on her 14-year old son after finding him playing Grand Theft Auto at 2:30 one morning, this is way after she had told him to go to bed. Question is: Is he really playing the first Grand Theft Auto? Come on mom stop being so cheap and get your son a new console. Anyway I would’ve just taken the console away from him and or the tv but that is just me, this is a little too extreme and a waste of a 911 call. Then we get Michael Jackson and Tiger Woods calls and they do not take them seriously enough. I mean come on really! Full story after the break
“Mejia’s son – one of four children the 49-year-old is raising alone – was playing “Grand Theft Auto,” an exceedingly violent video in which the gamer assumes the role of ladder-climbing criminal.
An argument ensued as Mejia unplugged her son’s PlayStation. Then, this mad-as-hell mother dialed 911. Police responded and managed to talk the boy into shutting off the game and going to sleep.
Mejia said she approves of athletic-themed videos, but as for “Grand Theft Auto,” she said, “I would never buy that kind of video. No way. I called (police) because if you don’t respect your mother, what are you going to do in your life?”
“They (police) were just like, ‘Chill out. Go to bed,’ ” the boy told the Herald.
Ok, so now the police have to be parents to children? Don’t they have enough on their plate with racing to Dunkin’ Donuts and threatening kids with handguns after getting a snowballs thrown at them?
