Gun-wielding dummy and thieving elf

Sometimes characters from games get a bit too mixed up with reality...

As when two armed officers burst into a suburban house to confront a gun-wielding suspect, only to discover it was a life-size dummy of Lara Croft lurking in the shadows. Lara (on the left) remains 'impounded as evidence'.

Or the sentencing of a man who claimed he stole lingerie from a shop at knife-point because he was under the illusion he was still 'Buho', his female elf character from a role-playing game. His disguise - wig, hat and glasses - doesn't sound very elfin, but it's an interesting excuse for stealing a load of ladies' underwear.

Thanks for the link, Paul!
