What do you do when your girlfriend is coming home from work and you don't want to stop gaming? You slip something into her tea, knocking her out, so you don't need to stop gaming - right?
This is what a 23-year-old German gamer did to his girlfriend, after she had gotten home from a 10-hour shift at work. The addicted gamer said: "I only put four or five drops into her tea". This knocked her out from 10pm, through the night to 12pm the next day, and even when she woke up, the effects of the drugs had her falling asleep on and off throughout the next day.
She told the court that her then boyfriend had admitted what he had done to her, which caused her to break up with him. The judge on the case fined the man $746, and said: "Your girlfriend slept long and deeply, which didn't harm her, but this is certainly a premeditated bodily harm". The boyfriend admitted that his act "was stupid" and that he was now "on a straight path" towards an apprenticeship.
