A video game enthusiast didn't want to wait in line, so he attempted to rob a man - at gun point. North Kansas City police said David Morales, 18, wanted the newly released video game 'Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 3,' that went on sale at midnight on Tuesday.

Not wanting to wait in line, police said Morales followed James Freeman home. Freeman had just purchased the game, and said when he arrived at his house a red Ford Explorer pulled up behind him. According to Freeman, Morales got out, pointed a gun at him and ordered him to hand over the game.

Instead, Freeman fought back.

"I grabbed for the gun, and I tried to lever it out of his hand, and like I said, I just scared him," Freeman said.

Morales took off and headed back to the Game Stop store, which is where police found him. Officers originally went to the store for surveillance video, but found Morales himself waiting in line.

If convicted, Morales faces up to 15 years in prison.
