When Swedish police received a call that six people were beating up a single woman, they rushed to the house to investigate, fearing the worst.
We're not sure who was more embarrassed when they burst into the living room to discover a bunch of friends playing video games - specifically, a few rounds of the boxing game in Kinect Sports. It's like something out of a bad movie, as police revealed the neighbours had become suspicious after watching silhouetted figures throwing punches at each other.
The gamers described the experience as being "a bit awkward", as law enforcement officers stormed into the room and demanded to know what was going on, and who was being beaten. Fortunately, it didn't take long for the truth to come to light and both parties had a bit of a laugh.
"Luckily, they were just playing," says Gothenburg police spokesperson Ms. Anderson.

I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
