Seems legit.

After 10 months on house arrest, a 19-year-old New Zealander has requested to serve the rest of his 11-month sentence in prison, as he’s grown “sick of playing Xbox.”

The New Zealand Herald reports that the unnamed man called up the local police station, told them he had “run out of Xbox games to play,” and would rather spend the final month of his sentence in a dark cell with other smelly dudes than shoot another stupid animated zombie.

The man was reportedly so fed up with his lack of a good Xbox game selection that he told the police he would bust out of his home if they didn’t come take him to jail. The police complied, and now he’ll serve out the rest of his term in a dingy cell. What a happy ending!

Teens: so bored with their media options that they would literally rather go to prison.
