Boasting leads to his bust

A gamer's boast has led to his bust. Authorities in Delhi, Louisiana, report Thomas Ballard made a late-night phone call saying he had "killed them all." He apparently thought he was dialing a buddy about his Xbox video game exploits. But state troopers say he called a woman by mistake, who reported the incident to police. Officers investigated and found no evidence of a crime. But police say a computer check found Ballard was wanted on 5-year-old cocaine possession charge. A Louisiana State Police spokeswoman says it's "weird" how all this came down.
