PS3 Hacker Gehot Caught Smoking Marijuana, Arrested In Texas


As long as you’re alive you’ll remember PS3 hacker George Hotz, aka Geohot. The guy went underground in recent times, and has been reportedly been employed at Facebook, but on his way to the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, the youngster was arrested for smoking pot, weed, marijuana or whatever it’s called in your area.

See, in L.A., Hotz has a licence to smoke the controlled substance, but L.A. isn’t Texas – bail was set at $1,500.

Thanks, VG247, Above The Law.

    If you didn’t break the QC seal you can get it replaced with a brand new one by Sony for $150. I did this a few years ago when I got the YLOD
