Lomorin Sar allegedly threatens to blow up store that doesn't have Call of Duty video game

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the latest iteration of the ultra-popular first-person shooter challenge in which a player must gun down opponents before they can splatter him with his own blood. Fortunately, most fans are able to separate fantasy from reality -- but the jury's still out on Loromin Sar, who allegedly went ballistic when his copy wasn't available on its release day.

As recounted by 9News,Sar pre-ordered CoD: MW3 at an Aurora Best Buy on Monday in advance of its official midnight release.

He returned to the store shortly after the witching hour, anticipating that he'd be leaving with the game. But no: Employees informed him that they were already out of stock.

Disappointed? That's putting it mildly. According to the Aurora Police Department, Sar responded by asking staffers when they would be leaving for the night -- because he planned on shooting them in the parking lot.

Oh yeah: He also threatened to blow up the store.

This exchange freaked out the Best Buy crew members, who called the cops the first chance they got. Police responded quickly, pulling Sar over near the intersection of 35th and Tower.

This wasn't Sar's first run-in with the boys and girls in blue. He's reportedly been contacted by the APD no fewer than six times over traffic-related matters.

In the end, Sar wound up not with a highly anticipated new game, but a summons for disorderly conduct. Which probably wasn't nearly as much fun.

If some idiot loser comes to my store and threatens me by "shooting" at me. I also would call the cops just because of the fact that COD players are "all RETARDED for buying the same game every year."

Hope this loser grows up, we can't be having 40 year old console kiddies living with their parents all the time.

Why...oh why....does anyone who plays video games get that reputation? Yeah this guys is a ubernerd and makes every other gamer look like a psycho loser, but alot of people who are 40 or will be 40, and have families, and take care of their responsibilities still like to play some 360 or PS3 in their off time.

the problem with making threats like that is that other, more serious individuals, might get "skeerd", and decide to kill him right there where he stands in the middle of the store.

threats are violent in nature, and therefore are likely to lead to real violence, almost always. 

threaten to shoot me after work in the parking lot I will personally break both your hands I dont give a fuck about my job

remind me not to pre-order anything at best buy. just because something is popular isn't an excuse to fail to deliver what the man paid for.

Preorders are first come first served too. If you preorder it, doing it hours before it is supposed to be released, what do you expect? Those stores take preorders weeks before the release for a reason.
