Public library director embezzled $89,000 to play Game of War

Game of War is a universally panned online "game" with a simple strategy -- the more money you spend, the better you do. Adam Winger (38), the director of the North Logan City library in Utah, was absolutely killing it in Game of War, but his reign of glorious virtual victory was overturned by real life adversaries, who put him on trial for stealing $89,000 in public funds to pay for in-game assets. He was found guilty, sentenced to 30 days in jail and 100 hours of community service, and ordered to pay restitution of $78,000.
