Colorado Man Threatens to Blow Up Best Buy over Modern Warfare 3 Pre-Order Problems

November 9, 2011 -

A man threatened to blow up his local game store yesterday after they informed him that they had sold out of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, according to police in Aurora, Colorado. Aurora Police Det. Bob Friel said that 31-year-old Lomorin Sar was arrested early Tuesday morning after he threatened the employees at the Best Buy at North Salida Court.

Witnesses told police that the man became irate with the customer service department after Midnight on Tuesday after they told him the game he allegedly pre-ordered was out of stock. Sar allegedly threatened employees, asking several of them "when they were leaving" and that he would "shoot them in the parking lot." Sar also allegedly said something about "blowing up the store."

After he left the store, employees called the police. He was pulled over and taken into custody shortly thereafter.

"Investigating officers issued a criminal summons to a man who threatened to carry out his own version of modern warfare at the electronics store. Fortunately, this situation did not end in violence," Friel told news channel KUSA-TV.

Sar was issued a summons for disorderly conduct. His court date was not revealed. Sar did not respond to the local news station's request for comments.

Sheesh! Has he even looked at the reviews? (well, the ones who weren't bribed to the stratosphere by Activision at any rate) The game just isn't worth jail time.

Matthew WilsonThat is why I said "every market". for example totalbescuit has TWC, and the best he can get atm is 10/10.01/29/2015 - 1:58pm

Matthew Wilson@prh I still have my doubts. if anything the big winner is Comcast. they are the only isp in the us that can provide that speed in every market they serve. att, verizon, and twc cant or at least dont.01/29/2015 - 1:50pm
Andrew EisenTrailer for Ted 2 and it looks like it won't simply be a rehash of the first. That's encouraging! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3AVcCggRnU01/29/2015 - 1:49pm
prh99It's nice to see an FCC chair who isn't just there to facilitate monopoly building for cable and telecom. Basically not a dingo.01/29/2015 - 1:46pm

Matthew Wilsonoh btw only about 5.6 percent of the us has broadband now.01/29/2015 - 1:21pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.theverge.com/2015/1/29/7932653/fcc-changed-definition-broadband-25mbps did not think the fcc would go through with it.01/29/2015 - 1:16pm
Andrew EisenI know, right? Don't you dare think the fact that I buy all your games makes this sort of behavior okay, TT Games!01/29/2015 - 12:57pm
IanCHow dare thy release games that do well both commercially and critically. How dare they. (refer to the Lego games)01/29/2015 - 12:55pm
Infophile@Wonderkarp: Tales of Innocence. Was in the final dungeon, when I accidentally left my 3DS on an airplane and couldn't get it back. Lost both the game and the system. Got a new system, but not the game (not fun enough to be worth replaying)01/29/2015 - 12:10pm
Andrew EisenOh, thank goodness. There will be at least two console LEGO games this year. For a moment I was worried there! (LEGO Jurassic World, LEGO Marvel's Avengers plus LEGO Ninjago for handheld.)01/29/2015 - 12:08pm
prh99Cminer: It's the only way to monetize Nintendo game videos. Otherwise Nintendo content IDs them and take all the AD revenue. Also it's only covers a small portion of their catalog.01/29/2015 - 12:06pm
ematuskeyWonderkarp: Pretty much every Elder Scrolls game. :p01/29/2015 - 11:53am
CMinerMaybe I missed something; is Nintendo actually going to try and force people to join their program? Or did they just create a program, and people are speculating?01/29/2015 - 10:53am
prh99I wonder if I can craft an AdBlock filter that only blocks ads on Nintendo videos. (not serious)01/29/2015 - 10:46am
WonderkarpI'm still going to do nintendo videos when I start my lets plays. I'm just going to make sure I'm uploading nonnintendo videos more.01/29/2015 - 10:40am
prh99I think all that will come out of that is fewer Nintendo videos, cause it's probably not worth the trouble.01/29/2015 - 10:37am
WonderkarpSo GP, what is the one game you never completed. Like you got real far but never finished it for some reason.01/29/2015 - 10:37am
