People always say video games are ruining the world, but for one 10-year-old boy, that may be frighteningly true.
The Nebraska boy’s game of choice was Minecraft, and according to the local ABC affiliate, he racked up $800 in fees building things out of the game’s digital blocks. Unfortunately, the boy used his 74-year-old grandma’s credit card to pay those fees.
The grandma then contacted her bank to report the fees, and bank employees told her to file a police report, and they would cancel them.
Which she did.
However, the police report landed her 10-year-old grandson in hot water after the police referred the case to the county attorney on suspicion of felony theft. ABC reports that the boy could face the charges in juvenile court.
