==Trivia==
*In [[Grand Theft Auto: London 1969]], the term is known as "''You're Nicked''" which is often used as a stereotype of what British police say when they arrest people.
+
===General===
*In the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS versions of Chinatown Wars, cheating stars away with a cop on foot will result in the cop opening a door on a random vehicle and walking away.
+
*In the [[3D Universe]] and [[HD Universe]], if the player is arrested, the law enforcement officers will aim their weapon as a pistol, regardless of what weapon they carry. This is most likely an animation error.
  +
*In all the games of the [[3D Universe]], once a player is arrested and the "BUSTED!" words appear on the screen nothing can undo this. If the cop dies during the busted sequence the player will not get up (except if the player takes explosive damage) and will remain on the ground or in their car (if a vehicular arrest has been performed). Also, it is impossible to go from the "BUSTED!" sequence to the "WASTED!" sequence as the player will be invulnerable to any type of damage while in the "BUSTED" sequence. However, if the player takes explosion damage while "BUSTED" appear, the player can regain control only for few seconds before they begin transported to the nearest police station.
  +
*In the [[3D Universe]] (except for [[GTA San Andreas]]), if the player dies with an officer of the law nearby, the officer will pull out his pistol just as if he is arresting the player (regardless of whether they had a wanted level or not). However, the words "WASTED!" will still appear on the screen and the player will still be respawned at the nearest hospital.
  +
*In the 3D Universe, if the player is arrested by an officer who was killed then revived by a [[Paramedics|paramedic]], the officer will still use pistol arrest animation while his hand is empty.
  +
**This also happens in [[GTA IV]] if the player shot the police officer's pistol off his hand and then got arrested by getting pulled out of the car.
  +
*No matter what crimes the player did commit, police will always let the player go after taking them to the police station.

The officer may also utter a comment such as "A good samaritan? Rare sight in this city!", or "Is this some sort of a trick, asshole?.. Thanks, I guess."

Instead the screen will turn grey and, after a few seconds, you will be returned to the nearest [[police station]]. However, if something interrupts the police officer doing the "arrest" animation (such as a car crashing into them), the game will glitch and it will continue showing the slow-mo scene until you press the left mouse-button, which skips the scene. Skipping with the mouse also works when you simply don't want to watch the whole busted scene.

When pulled out, the officer will be simply shooting at the player instead of playing the arrest animation. This is because in multiplayer, the police lack an arrest function.

Busted-GTA4

Getting busted in GTA IV

The term 'Busted' refers to the player being arrested by the
GTA 3 - Busted 00:46

GTA 3 - Busted

Busted In GTA 3.

police or any other type of law enforcement in a Grand Theft Auto game as a result of having a wanted level. As wanted levels progress higher, the law enforcement is more likely to attempt to waste the player rather than arrest them, although if given the chance, they will still attempt to pull the player from of their vehicle.

Many factors can contribute to this:

  • Being pulled from a vehicle, or having the player's vehicle door successfully opened by a member of law enforcement.
  • Being on the ground when a member of law enforcement is within a certain radius. This tends to happen if the player engages in melee combat with a member of law enforcement, and is knocked to the ground.
  • Being knocked to the ground while attempting to steal a law enforcement vehicle, with an agent inside.

EffectsEdit

As a result of getting busted, the player has their body armor and all of their weapons confiscated, and will fail any mission that was in progress at the time of arrest. The player will also have to pay a fee of $100. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the player also loses all of their garage-stored vehicles, and in Chinatown Wars, any drugs currently held by the player are confiscated.

ExceptionsEdit

WeaponsEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, if Carl is dating Barbara Schternvart, the player's weapons will not be lost.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the player's confiscated weapons can be returned for $2000. They will be processed at the closest precinct, and a small amount of money will also be taken by the police as a bribe.

MoneyEdit

In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, if you complete level 15 of the Avenging Angel Missions in Staunton Island, you will not have to pay a fee if you get busted.

OtherEdit

In Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V, the player is permitted to resist arrest by breaking away during the arrest. This can only be done if being held at gunpoint by an officer. Doing so will earn the player a two-star wanted level, and cause the arresting officer (and any others in the vicinity) to engage the player with their firearm.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • In the 3D Universe and HD Universe, if the player is arrested, the law enforcement officers will aim their weapon as a pistol, regardless of what weapon they carry. This is most likely an animation error.
