New Zealand prisoner chooses jail after running out of Xbox games to play.
The New Zealand Herald (via NeoGAF) reported yesterday that a prisoner under home arrest has decided to go to jail after becoming sick of his Xbox.
The Whangarei man called police on Tuesday, stating that he was bored serving home detention and was sick of playing his Xbox. The man further stated that he would rather serve the rest of his sentence in jail.
Paul Nicholas, the senior Constable of Whangarei police, stated that the 19 year old man had already served 10 of his 11 month sentence. Nicholas went on to say that the prisoner called because he “had run out of Xbox games to play”.
To get his point across, the 19-year-old prisoner went on to state that he would breach his house arrest if he was not picked up and taken to jail. In the end, the police granted the man his wish.
Was boredom and running out of Xbox games to play really the best reason to ask for jail time?
