Call it a lesson in gloating.
All 29-year-old Thomas Ballard wanted to do was brag to his friend about his success over Xbox Live – what he got was arrested. Taking top ranking in an online match after an all night session, the Delhi, La. man used his numb fingers to dial his friend and talk up his achievement.
“I’ve killed them all,” Ballard said.
The only problem? He dialed the wrong number. The woman he did dial became instantly concerned and called local police. When authorities arrived at Ballard’s residence, they found no evidence of wrong doing.
But they did find that he had a nearly 5-year-old warrant for failing to appear in court resulting from a cocaine charge.
Let this is be a lesson guys — sometimes, it’s best to just get some rest after a long gaming session.
