We’ve all thought about it. What would life be like if it was more like GTA? No one in their right mind would actually do such things. But it looks like this guy thought it would be a good idea. Turns out it didn’t go as he planned, who woulda thought?
The story begins on an average morning at a gas station in Colorado. A red Ford Edge was left running and a certain individual took his opportunity, jumped in and headed on his way. Unfortunately for all parties involved, a four year old boy was sat in the back of the car, bumping up the crime from carjacking to kidnapping. Naturally, the authorities were called and police were swiftly dispatched to catch up to the thief.
Not a face you’d put on your GTA character, this man tries to reenact GTA in real life
Investigators identified the man as Ryan Stone and the car was spotted along Interstate 25 in Thornton shortly after. When the police managed to follow his trail and catch up, Stone tried to shake them by driving off the highway and speeding through several neighborhoods before returning to the highway.
This is where things started taking a turn for the worse, instead of keeping his current vehicle, Stone used the minivan to block off a gold minivan (a classic GTA tactic) and dragged the driver out. Leaving the child behind, he began to drive dangerously, hitting higher speeds and driving into oncoming traffic. The whole chase was being broadcast live and reporters began to fear for everyone’s lives.
Stone made another attempt to steal another car, a silver BMW, but was unable to gain access. He jumped back into his damaged minivan for a short while before deciding it was a good idea to go on foot. Luckily, the police caught him. Seriously, has he never watched Cops? Going on foot is never a good idea. Stone faces multiple charges, including first-degree assault, attempted manslaughter and child abuse, which amounted to a huge sentence of 160 years.
All that was missing from the scenes was a huge gunfight, having S.W.A.T involved, a huge trail of destruction and bodies in his wake, super cars and of course, the bad guy getting away by hiding in an alleyway and this would have been real life GTA.
Heres some highlights of the chase
Drive safe folks.
