Tyler Barriss is a Call of Duty fan and apparently a little too much for that matter as recently he was involved in a gamble over the famous Call of Duty game with another fan. Now bets are normal things when it comes to gaming but this one took a path of no return. According to the US district court judge, Tyler Barriss has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for placing 911 calls, including a swatting incident in 2017 that caused the death of a man in Wichita, Kansas, as per Associated Press.

Apparently, the fatal shooting was the fallout over a heated argument over a $1.50 bet in Call of Duty. Barriss gave an address to the police posing as Shane Gaskill’s rival. Telling the dispatcher that he murdered his father and was holding the rest of the family hostage. In return, as one can expect SWAT team showed up at the residence of 28-year-old Andrew Finch. Apparently, the address told by Tyler was incorrect.

And so Barriss was arrested shortly after the fatal shooting and he also pleaded guilty to over 51 total charges late last year and now is serving 20 years in prison. Apparently, the Call Of Duty gamble of $1.5 cost him 20 in prison.

So this does highlight the fact that Call of duty is a much-loved game but we would suggest you retain caution.
