NBN Co Chief, Bill Morrow, has continued to throw blame towards the online gaming community, this time criticising their gaming for a recent speeding ticket. Morrow attempted to talk his way out of the ticket late on Wednesday night by arguing that the gamers had hacked his vehicle, which resulted in him travelling 73km/h in a 60 zone.
The police officer, and online gaming enthusiast, attempted to explain to Morrow that hacking didn’t work that way, but Morrow wasn’t having a bar of it.
“It’s the gamers, they hacked my car. They’re ruining our lives…they even bloody stole my letter box.”
Despite Morrow’s hacking claims, the officer presented him with the $250 fine and 60 days to pay it.
When asked for comment, a police spokesperson said that they did not yet have any leads on the stolen letter box, but had not ruled out the online gaming community.
