Ray Liotta, who provides the voice for Tommy in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in La La Land – however, nobody is quite certain just what he was under the influence of. The bad lad crashed his Cadillac Escalade into two parked cars in Los Angeles at the weekend.
According to Reuters, “Liotta, 52, was detained after his sport utility vehicle struck two parked cars near his home in the upscale coastal suburb of Pacific Palisades on Saturday evening, said Los Angeles Police Dept. spokesman Mike Lopez.”
Whether or not arch-anti games campaigners will be able to blame GTA
or will have to turn to the movie Goodfellas
– in which Liotta played real-life crim, Henry Hill, in a cocaine fuelled drive – is yet to be seen.
Liotta’s news comes shortly after Salt Lake City Police Chief, Chris Burbank, assured the world that 18 year-old Sulejman Talovic - who went berserk with an illegally acquired firearm killing five people at the Trolley Square mall – did not even own a PC let alone a console and was therefore totally unlikely to have been influenced by violent games.
