After a 17-year old Ohio teenager was banned from World of Warcraft, he contacted Blizzard's help desk to get his account reinstated. According to reports, he told them he was suicidal and WoW was all he had to live for. Blizzard didn't reinstate the account but did call emergency services. When the police and paramedics arrived, the teen said it was all a joke and he was using the threat of suicide to get what he wanted. The police didn't find the joke all that funny and charged the teenager with a first-degree misdemeanor.
