The orange NES Zapper, released 1989

A man who allegedly robbed a shop wielding Nintendo’s iconic 1980s Zapper as a weapon has been arrested.

David Joseph Dalesandro, 25, allegedly painted the video game controller most strongly associated with Duck Hunt and threatened a shopkeeper with it.

He fled from the shop in Charlotte, North Carolina with $300 in cash (around €280), police said.

However, he was shortly apprehended by police just down the street from the shop, local TV channel WFSB reports.
