Taking the term spoilsport to a whole new level, a 46 year old British man by the name of Mark Bradford has been charged with assault for choking a thirteen year old boy after losing to him repeatedly in Call of Duty: Black Ops. After listening to his taunts all day, he actually tracked the little guy down, went over to his house and proceeded to choke the living daylights out of him until the boy’s mum intervened. Now I understand teenagers can be a real pain in the backside online with their incessant whining, name calling and in some cases singing but this is a bit extreme.
We're coming to kill you – literally
When the cops came in to break things up, here’s what he told them, “ [The kid] went on and on and I just lost it. I hold my hands up, I lost the plot. In a moment of madness I went round to his house. I didn't know what I was going to do.” Rage quit dude or call him names but for the love of God don’t give uninformed media outlets and useless politicians ammunitions for their anti-video game tirade.
On the flip side, what was an underage kid doing playing an M rated game in the first place hmm? Thanks to Gameinformer for the heads up.
