Man Learns To Drive On PlayStation, Arrested After Police Chase

Englishman Adam Jones, 24, doesn't have a driver's licence. He's never even sat a licence exam. So when he was arrested last week by police for driving at over 100mph through the town of Grantham, his excuse was that he had "learned to drive on his Playstation."

As ITV reports (via Boing-Boing), Jones was arrested after he had "caused thousands of pounds worth of damage" to parked cars in the town, his speedy escape stopped by a stinger spike system like this:

He was sentenced to 12 months prison this week, the Judge saying:

You said you 'Only learnt to drive on a Playstation game.' You were driving like a Playstation game. You drove as fast as you could as if in a video or Playstation game without any care for those around you.

    Unless he is mentally challenged there is no excuse for this shit. Should have given him 5 years.

      The Australian classification board are now assessing whether driving games should require a drivers license on purchase.
      New rules to be created for L and P plate drivers

        Mario Kart is limited to 50cc for L Platers, P Platers can use 100cc but not bikes.

        Sad thing is, if we still had Abbott in, I'd be completely unsurprised if that was legislated.

    Great, if this gets picked up by our mass media..............................we're going to go through this again aren't we? I was hoping the facebook warriors would only whinge about these anti-gaming stories once every GTA cycle.

    Awesome...one twatbag ruins the image of gaming again, just as things were starting to turn around. If only the media could portray this as 'A man has learned how to drive from a video game but is unfortunately unable to recognise the difference between reality and fiction' instead of the inevitable 'A man went on a crazy car chase after playing video games'. Honestly, I've learned so much from video games...yet no one will notice unless I do something stupid with that knowledge.

    Man... That rat trap thing looks so dangerous to deploy. Already cringing at the thought of it.
