Popular Grand Theft Auto V roleplay Twitch streamers MOONMOON and MiltonTPike1 wound up in a hilariously-awkward situation with police yesterday when their getaway vehicle wound up tailing the authorities.
Playing as their characters Yung Dab and Kiki on the NoPixel server, the pair tried going incognito during an escape by calling a taxi driven by a player named Eric. Unfortunately for the fugitives, it just so happened that their taxi wound up behind a police cruiser.
Per the in-game meta, cops can pull over players for breaking traffic laws, like speeding or running red lights. Therefore, the taxi driver couldn’t simply drive away without causing a scene, leaving the group no choice but to continue following the cop car and hope no one noticed.
Thanks to the proximity chat of NoPixel, their cover was blown as soon as they stopped at a red light. As the criminals were listening in on the conversation going on inside the cop car, the police were doing the same with what was being said behind them.
Shortly after, the officers realized what was going on. An officer stepped out of the vehicle and faced the taxi. “Hey,” she said.
“…Hey,” Yung Dab responded, using the least convincing fake voice he could’ve possibly chosen.
“How’s it going?” the officer asked.
“Eric, drive,” Dab yelled. “Drive you fucker.”
Eric sped off just as the other officer was stepping out and commanding them to exit their vehicle.
