Man Threatens Cops With Wii Remote, Gets Jail Time

An unnamed Dutch man has been sentenced to six months’ prison for threatening police officers with a heavily-modified Wii controller back in May.

Dutch news outlet De Volksrant says the man, 29, had transformed the remote into a “sniper rifle”; whether it was a custom job or he was simply using an off-the-shelf accessory is unclear.

What matters is that he threatened cops with it, the cops thought it was a real gun, and he’s now looking at a significant amount of time behind bars for being an idiot.
