Parents used to live in fear of their video game obsessed kids playing Grand Theft Auto then deciding it would be a grand idea to steal a car and lead the police on a high speed chase, but thankfully no kid was ever that dumb.
However, convicted dumb criminal Ryan Stone proved age does not guarantee wisdom back in 2013 when he started his GTA in real life crime spree by stealing a red Ford Edge left running in a gas station parking lot.
But Ryan had just stolen a car with a four-year-old in the back and realized he needed to bail out, so he pulled a GTA move and blocked off another car on the road, dragging the driver out before speeding off again.
After a failed attempt to jump cars once again Ryan took off on foot, the scene ending dramatically yet unlike GTA because the helicopter didn't mow him down in the middle of the street.
Whether he was actually trying to imitate the video game series or not is unknown, but everyone involved is thankful the incident did not play out like GTA because nobody was killed or seriously injured during the spree.
