Icelandic police called out to stop boy playing computer

A woman in Reykjavik this week called the police out because of her son’s computer usage.

According to DV, the police were called out to a house in the capital region because of an argument over computer use. A mother and her son were arguing bitterly over his computer habits.

The mother was convinced that too much time on the computer was harming her son’s schooling. He, meanwhile, disagreed vehemently. The police made an effort at mediation before leaving the scene.

Police left the house before a deal could be reached between the warring pair; and it is not known if the argument was actually resolved.

The bizarre police call-out was not looked upon favourably by busy officers; but it is by no means the first of its kind, they say.
