A man allegedly stole a $100,000 BMW M3 from a San Francisco dealership, totaled it, and was later arrested during a domestic dispute. If that doesn’t sound like your average Grand Theft Auto mission, then I don’t know what does.
This all started when the 37-year-old suspect broke into BMW of San Francisco dealership at around 5 a.m. When police responded to the alarms, the front of the dealership had smashed windows and misplaced cars, once again proving to be GTA inspired obviously.
Fast-forward five minutes, and the police respond to a hit and run call nearby involving a new red BMW. Well, what do you know, the suspect crashed the car into a parked taxi cab. He of course fled the scene after.
Now, it’s 6:30 a.m., and a police officer responds to a domestic dispute between a man and a woman. The man detained fit the description of the earlier two crimes, and was then taken to San Francisco County Jail.
Not that I think playing violent video games correlates to real-life crime, but I do wonder if this particular individual is familiar with the notorious game franchise. If he is, then I sure hope he knows that he’s not getting out of this one with the “lower wanted stars” cheat code.
