Real Life 'Grand Theft Auto' Theft


Posted April 30, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

The above pictured dude, Richard Fiel, 27, is in hot water. He was arrested in San Diego yesterday. The po-po says he had a purloined copy of Grand Theft Auto IV in his truck that he'd swiped from a GameStop after spraying a couple employees with pepper spray.

Cops also found a PlayStation 3 dual-shock controller, and "Grand Theft Auto,"and "Grand Theft Auto III"  video games in his vehicle, also presumably stolen from GameStop.

"The call came out as a robbery of a commercial business ... and the suspect was described, and the vehicle that he got into was described as a white Toyota pickup truck, lifted with the tailgate down, and our helicopter ABLE spotted the vehicle southbound," San Diego Police Lt. Karen Tenney. "The officers followed it. The suspect parked here and then ran into the business located behind me and locked the door behind him."

How many stars Fiel had at the time of his capture remains unknown, but we're thinking one, tops.
