We’ve all overreacted a bit when we’ve died on GTA. I’ve come out with some swearwords that I didn’t even know existed. But this dickhead went a tad too far.
David Helens phoned 999, and told emergency services that his friend Max had been shot, and was drifting in and out of consciousness. He stayed on the phone for 12 minutes, faking screams and cries, while the worried operator dispatched two ambulances to the given address.
His defending statement included the coinciding of the incident, with him dying on GTA V. Not the most solid of reasons.
Helens got sentenced to a 12 month community service order, and has to do 120 hours of unpaid work.
Police time… Wasted.
