Man saved from arrest by slot machine

Slot Machine Saves German Gambler As Police Arrive
Sep. 25, 2014 2:15 PM EDT

BERLIN (AP) — A gambler in Germany has been saved from prison by a one-armed bandit.

Police said Thursday that two officers carrying out routine checks at an arcade in the western city of Bochum late last week discovered that a man playing a slot machine faced an arrest warrant.

He had been ordered to pay a 710-euro ($910) fine or go to prison for 71 days after resisting police during a previous incident.

Police say that as officers informed the man that he faced arrest, the slot machine started to flash and the beaming 37-year-old won a jackpot of 1,000-euro (about $1,300).

The man paid his fine on the spot — in cash.
