Chicago, IL (The Weekly Vice) - Luis Matienzo, a 19-year-old Illinois man, was jailed Sunday after he allegedly played a video game for hours while his 2-year-old stepson cried out in pain from a broken leg.
According to police, Matienzo was watching his 2-year-old stepson when the child suffered a broken right femur while playing inside a playpen at the home.
Matienzo allegedly played the video game "Grand Theft Auto V" for two and a half hours "while knowing that the child was injured with a leg injury, later found to be a broken right leg," according to the arrest affidavit.
Investigators say Matienzo later admitted to knowing that the child was injured, but left the boy in his play pen crying because he didn't want to stop playing the video game.
He eventually stopped playing when it was time to pick up his wife. That's when the child was brought to a local hospital for medical care.
Matienzo was booked into jail and charged with misdemeanor child endangerment.
