New Zealand teenager on home detention runs out of Xbox games to play, asks to serve rest of sentence in prison


According to a report from the New Zealand Herald, a teenager who has been serving an 11-month home detention asked to spend the rest of his sentence in jail instead. The reason? Well, he ran out of Xbox games to play.

The 19-year old apparently already served 10 months of his 11-month sentence but when he “had run out of Xbox games to play,” called the police saying that he would violate his home detention if they didn’t take him to jail. He was granted his wish and is now serving the rest of his sentence in Ngawha Prison.

He should’ve just asked for a PlayStation 3.

    Some peoples kids! It’s obvious that this young man will once again be making poor decisions when he is released.

    He has no control for a month, or ability to think of a solution for 30 days? Good luck when he’s free again.
