Wanted fugitive found hiding inside WORLD OF WARCRAFT

Whatever the heck that thing is you see on the right ('cuz I don't play World of Warcraft) that's the on-screen persona of one Alfred Hightower, an American citizen who's been wanted since 2007 for drug dealing. But when he heard the fuzz was onto him Hightower jumped across the border and set up shop in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Hightower didn't leave World of Warcraft however. And that's where a Howard County, Indiana deputy sheriff was able to find him and with assistance from the game's producer Blizzard, wound up tracking him down and having Hightower extradited back to the United States.
