White Home safety was breached this week by a felony mastermind the likes of which we have now by no means recognized: Pikachu.
Issues have at all times been loopy in Washington due to politics and all types of different headline-making occasions. So, we had been a bit shocked when one in all this week’s massive tales had a connection to video video games. And no, they are not speaking about stricter laws or a extra thorough score system.
NBC’s Scott MacFarlane has reported Kentucky man by the identify of Curtis Combs has been charged with illegal entry “for breaching White Home safety, searching for to leap fence and put up it to Youtube.” Should you learn a bit additional, you may see why we predict MacFarlane buried the lede right here. For starters, Combs was dressed as Pikachu.
This all went down on Oct. 17 at about 9:35 within the morning, in line with the crime report from the Superior Court docket for the District of Columbia. The report states an officer was strolling his footbeat, when, on the south facet of the White Home, he noticed Curtis Combs “approaching the outer perimeter fence whereas carrying a Pikachu costume.” For starters, good on the reporting officer for recognizing Pikachu. For disgrace, although, for not figuring out that one of the simplest ways to apprehend the man would have been to chuck a Pokeball at him. Apparently he did not watch sufficient Pokemon rising up.
Combs was a minimum of good sufficient to state that he was unarmed earlier than he started climbing the gosh-darned fence to the White Home. Warnings had been yelled, however Pikachu stored proper on climbing and cleared the fence. He was then instantly apprehended with out incident.
In line with statements gathered on the scene, Combs was properly conscious he was committing a criminal offense however, eager to be well-known, figured hopping the White Home fence in a Pokemon costume would possibly do the trick. Combs was apparently recording his escapades and doing an intro when the officer approached. Out of a questionable need to complete what he began, he apparently reduce the intro quick, dropped his bag and headed over the fence.
Simply to indicate off how a lot homework this explicit Pikachu put in, he additionally acknowledged he had researched earlier fence jumpers on the White Home with the intention to determine what sort of punishment he could be in for as soon as he was arrested. Apparently, it was gentle sufficient to persuade him to provide it a go. Extra extremely, Combs acknowledged he hopes to return to the White Home some day with the intention to go on a tour along with his son.
If the authorities want any help of their investigation, Pikachu is definitely a skilled detective. And if he has to go to jail, we think about his time in Smash Bros. and Pokken Tournament will turn out to be useful if there’s any hassle with the opposite inmates. A minimum of we already know the yellow lightning rat is used to captivity.
