Plants vs. Zombies leads to a Philippine jailbreak

Everybody knows that there’s a certain risk one takes when playing addictive, engrossing games when you’re meant to be doing something else. The prevalence of awesome games on the iPhone hasn’t helped that risk – as a Philippines police officer has learned.

Five inmates recently escaped from a police precinct in Cagayan de Oro City, snatching up the officer’s keys where he’d left them while playing a quick few levels of Plants vs. Zombies. Apparently, the convicts had no trouble getting the keys and gaining their freedom – although four of the five were recaptured shortly after.

Much more important than doing your work

It is not known whether the police officer suffered any sort of disciplinary action – but I’m guessing he’ll be getting his next gaming fix some time when he’s not on the clock.
