HOPA, Turkey, July 29 (UPI) -- A Turkish customs agent was busted playing video games on the job when Customs and Trade Minister Hayati Yazici came for a surprise inspection, officials said.

During his recent visit to Hopa, in Turkey's border province of Artvin, Yazici decided to make a surprise visit to the Sarp Border Gate on the Georgia border, Today's Zaman reported Sunday.

Yazici had his security team leave him and had the license plates on his car changed for the surprise inspection.

When he arrived for the inspection, Yazici entered a room at random and caught an officer playing a video game, the report said.

Yazici proceeded to scold the officer for playing video games while at work.
