I'm sure we've all thought about killing a GameStop worker, but none of us are stupid enough to go into a store and actually promise it. One man in Michigan did, after failing to return his Xbox 360 without a receipt, and promptly got himself arrested for it.

The 43-year-old man was enraged over the store's refusal to accept his console without a receipt and said he would kill somebody. This was taken seriously enough to warrant the arrival of a team of cops in "active shooter response" mode. Employees and customers waited in the back while the cops set about slamming the man into a counter and arresting him on the spot. A search of his bag found a stun gun -- illegal in Michigan -- which the man tried to claim was for self defense.

"It was an interesting day here at the GameStop," said worker David Roman.
