GTA Saved The Day!

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 07:06 PM MDT | By Zidane
ABC13.com reports of a robbery in Santa Fe, Texas, which was thwarted due to a police officer's voice in one of the Grand Theft Auto games on the Playstation 2. Here's a snippet of the article:
The children happened to be playing a video game called Grand Theft Auto at the time. The game has dozens of random police scanner messages, which blare out calls such as "This is the police! You’re surrounded!" Believe it or not, Wilson says the burglars heard that message and thought police were outside the door waiting for them.
You can check out the amazing article here.

man, i can't watch the video...but from the little screenshot there, it looks like black and white cop cars, rules out Vice, and looks kinda more square than LS and SF police, but not as square as LVPD, so that means GTA3! i rock.......but i could be wrong.....

No , the game that scared the dudes away was GTA:VC , but while they were filming the reporter and the kids were in the background , they were playing GTA:SA,

Hopes this shows those over protected people that GTA isn't bad at all , well its not bad for "normal people" , cause if u give this game to a maniac , you will see alot of cnn news
