| by Jonathan Wolfe

Chicago man Luis Matienzo has been charged with child endangerment after he played video games for over two hours after learning that his step-son had a broken leg. 

Officials say Matienzo, 19, played Grand Theft Auto V for over two hours “while knowing that the (child) was injured with a leg injury, later found to be a broken right leg.”

It is not clear what caused the two-year-old child’s injury.

Matienzo admitted to police that he continued playing video games well after realizing the child’s leg was injured. He only stopped playing the game when it was time to pick up his wife, at which point he sought out medical attention for the child as well.
