A Florida man has been charged with illegally driving a truck loaded with a video game that is inciting violence against Muslims and other minority groups.
Authorities said the video game is titled “The Last of Us” and depicts the death of an African American teenager by an anti–Muslim, anti–Semitic and anti–Christian gunman.
The video game was uploaded to the game-playing website GameSpot on Tuesday, according to the criminal complaint filed by Broward Sheriff’s Office spokesman Joe Frolich.
The complaint says the video has been viewed more than 17 million times since its release on Dec. 18.
It includes screenshots and videos of the game and is posted to GameSpot.
Broward County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of a “brazen and cowardly” assault on a woman at the intersection of East 6th Street and West 6th Avenue in Broward on Dec, 18, said Froloch.
The suspect fled, but he later crashed into a parked vehicle, Froliches statement said.
The truck was located a short time later, and the driver was taken into custody, the complaint said.
Authorities recovered a loaded gun and a pistol from the scene, the criminal said.
Frolich said the man was arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a weapon, illegal possession of ammunition, unlawful possession with intent to sell, and possession of stolen property.
Folich said a court date has not yet been set.
