( 4UMF NEWS ) 13-Year-Old Steals Car To See Xbox Boyfriend:
A 13-year-old Texas girl snatched her brother’s car and drove across three states to visit a boyfriend she met playing Xbox games online, authorities said.
“She had mentioned that she was talking to a boy online and said he was her boyfriend,” her mother, Tressa Robinson, told the station. “She started staying in her bedroom more, isolating herself where she was always with the headset, always talking. That’s how they communicated through the Xbox.”
The lovestruck teen tried to throw her folks off her scent with a note saying she was upset about being bullied at school and headed to a girlfriend’s house.
But her parents later checked her email account and found a message with Dylan’s address, the station reported.
The couple suspected Elizabeth might pull a stunt like this after her father took her Xbox away and she started asking about the gas mileage on her brother’s car, KHOU reported.
Dylan, meanwhile, didn’t leave home during his online squeeze’s cross-country trek.
Pause. “So, bro, how many miles to the gallon does your Honda get?”
I love it…
