Gilbert Arenas has given a statement to the media today stating it’s not his fault.

Gil says he was emotionally invested by the videogame known as ‘Halo’ and was caught up in a world not his own.

“I didn’t know what I was doing. I wasn’t in control. I thought I was Master Chief but probably I was just an idiot.”

Gilbert is believed to be one of 14 players who still refuse to disconnect from Halo 2’s online service going by the handle ‘xxGILBOWIZJAILxx’
