Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 picked up the award for best shooter during Spike TV's Video Game Awards show tonight, but not without causality.

The rules of the VGA acceptance speech are: If you go past your allotted time, a cosplaying soldier teabags you on stage. When Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling blew the time limit, he tossed the award to Michael Condrey, co-founder and chief development officer at Sledgehammer Games, and ran off stage.

So it was Condrey who took the crotch to the face as presenter Charlie Sheen grinned and watched.
