Kid rings police after parents confiscate Xbox

True (and depressing) story: some little sod from Illinois has called 911 on his parents after they punished him by taking away his Xbox 360. Ugh.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the boy hung up before the emergency call was complete, so officers were sent to the address in case something of actual importance was happening. It probably didn’t look like the scene above. I hope it didn’t look like the scene above.

After the cops arrived, El Brat asked an officer whether his parents had the right to swipe his precious Xbox. The cop replied that yes, they do, and advised him to listen more to his parents.

They then drove off, their time thoroughly wasted by this little ingrate. Hopefully a slipper is connecting with his ass right … about … now.
