Rosenblum of GameLife arrested over VT-like threat

Some of you may have been fans of GameLife and would certainly recognize who Andrew Rosenblum is. If you're familiar with Rosenblum and the show, then this news may come as somewhat of a shock. According to Boston police reports, the GameLife host was picked up as a result of "an e-mail threatening to kill an ex-girlfriend and recreate the Virginia Tech bloodshed at her school."

Rosenblum allegedly wrote these words to the 19-year-old female target:

“(I)’m gonna (expletive) bring a gun to your school and kill you and K (another female student) and everybody you love. It’s gonna be VT all over again,” 20-year-old Andrew Rosenblum allegedly wrote in an e-mail to the victim just hours after 32 people were gunned at Virginia Tech.

“Seriously I’m just that demented,” Rosenblum wrote, according to a BPD report. He ended the message with a threat to commit homicide and suicide: “killing people can change people’s lives forever. (T)he best is in the end when I pull the trigger on myself, too."

Allegedly, the girl had gone out with Rosenblum on three separate occasions and once that had ended the harassment began. From the Boston Herald:

The 19-year-old woman told cops she went on three dates with Rosenblum at the beginning of the school year, but had broken up with him. Rosenblum then allegedly harassed her, she said, according to the police report.

The victim began receiving the disturbing instant e-mail messages just before midnight Monday - the day of the Virginia Tech massacre - which she saved and printed, according to the report. 

Bad timing, bad taste, and poor judgement all around, Andrew.
