Man Accused of Using XBL for Witness Tampering

Xbox Live can be used for any number of unsavory purposes, including making threats and stalking. However, this is the first we’ve ever heard of witness tampering over the service.
The New Haven Register (via Kotaku) is reporting that Anthony Hayward of Hamden, Connecticut has been charged with "tampering with a witness, intimidating a witness and two counts of second-degree harassment." And all of this reportedly took place over Xbox Live.

The Connecticut man is accused of sending messages that include "I wouldn’t laugh 2 much U a dead man walking" and "Rats die slow." The witness is reportedly scheduled to testify against Hayward, who is free on bail following charges of drug possession and keeping a stolen gun in his car.

Xbox Live has been a factor in a number of criminal cases, some of which have involved tracking suspects through the service. More recently, a potential school shooting was averted by an Xbox Live tipster.

Hayward is back behind bars and his bail is set for $50,000. He’ll be back in court on April 30.
