BOSTON (CBS/AP) Grand theft auto is a crime. Playing the "Grand Theft Auto" video game is not.

But Boston police say a frustrated mother called 911 to say she couldn't get her 14-year-old son to sleep, because he wouldn't stop playing the popular video game.

Police spokesman Officer Joe Zanoli said Monday the mother called for help around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday to say that the video-game-obsessed teenager also walked around the house and turned on all the lights.

Two officers who responded to the house convinced the child to obey his mother.

Zanoli says the mother's 911 call over video game obsession "was a little unusual, but by no means is it surprising — especially in today's day and age when these kids play video games and computer games."

The Boston Herald first reported the 911 call.

It is unclear which Grand Theft Auto video game the boy couldn't stop playing. The series has come under criticism for high levels of violent and sexually provocative content, especially for a young audience.

Instead of calling the Babylon, shouldn't she just turn the bumbaclot game off and give him a beating for disrespect? What a waste of time. <_<

Yeah, because beating children really works. <_<

That women is a dumbarse, 911 should be used for emergencies only. She should have either taken his console away from him for a week or taken him to see a doctor.

I read this yesterday and really want to punch the mother.

If you can't figure out how to get your kid to stop playing, YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE A KID. Cops don't have time for this shit.

I don't know who needs the biggest beating: the kid for being a jackass, the mother for being unfit to raise a goldfish (let alone a child), or the police for actually responding. It's BOSTON, there has got to be something, ANYTHING, else for the cops to respond to.

Yeah, cops do a great job around here... :P

If you watched that locked up thing for kids on Fox and Spike TV, there is a bunch of kids who go to jail for things like that.

It is a good game and possibly obsessive as it is in this case.

It would have been a better idea to shutdown the main power instead of wasting the police's time.
