A 23 year-old man from Spring Hill, Florida has been charged with theft and dealing in stolen property after he nicked his mother's Nintendo Wii and sold it to buy cigarettes and booze.

Christopher Bayko allegedly stole the Wii last month then sold it to a local pawn shop. When his mother noticed her console was missing, Bayko told her it was "at a friend's house", a lie which didn't hold up too well once she found the receipt for the Wii's sale.

Worst part? He's so stupid he sold it for $56.
