If you ever wondered where the phrase “Mad as a hatter” comes from, no doubt it was coined to accurately describe people like convict Jonathan Lee Riches. This nut bag has filed for a restraining order against Take-Two interactive and its coming Grand Theft Auto IV title.

Eurogamer quotes Riches as saying, “Plaintiff seeks a restraining order against the newest Grand Theft Auto games.” The loon continues, “Defendants contributed to Plaintiff committing identity theft. Defendant’s games shows [sic] sex, drugs, and violence which offends me. Defendants put me in prison. I face imminent danger from violent inmates who played Grand Theft Auto who will knock me out and take my gold Jesus cross."

What I would like to know is how a crackpot already behind bars for identity theft can muster the resources needed to file multiple suits and restraining orders. This isn’t his first suit; the guy has had similar legal issues with Christian Slater, Star Wars, Martha Stuart, George W. Bush, Steve Jobs, and Britney Spears. Perhaps he was suing Britney to get her to wear some knickers when she goes out. I think that’s one many of us could go along with.
