Pensioner learns that going on Grand Theft Auto style rampages have real-life consequences

You know what's fun? Grand Theft Auto. You know what's less fun? Real life. A pair of Northern Irish men are finding that out the hard way after going on a GTA-style rampage, nicking a fire engine and crashing it into a bunch of cars before smashing it into a house.

The 19-year-old and 66-year-old half-inched the fire engine from Larne Fire Station in County Antrim in the early hours of Saturday morning, after making as much of a mess in the fire station as they could. When they veered off the road, they ended up flipping at least one car completely over. The fire engine had its lights flashing when it crashed, meaning they must have clicked the right thumbstick to make it go nee-naw nee-naw.

Unlike in GTA where criminal actions are rewarded either with no punishment whatsoever or with increasingly deadly force, the two men were arrested and charged with burglary and causing damage to cars and homes. One of them is lightly injured, but if he stays out of the action for a few minutes his health bar will refill. Hang on, no, it won't, sorry.
