Police respond to Xbox inspired fight

Posted: December 12, 2012 - 2:49pm

Police were called to a residence on Willow Street Tuesday after an altercation began between two men, ages 43 and 35, while playing Xbox.

According to the police report an uncle to one of the men overheard fighting in the living room. One of the men reportedly used an 18” metal pipe to knock over a table, breaking its glass top. He then allegedly hit the other man several times.  The victim told police they were playing Xbox, when “for no reason” the other man began to strike him.

The man told police he was knocked to the floor and tried to defend himself. He suffered a broken right arm, but could not recall the way it had happened. Police talked to the suspect, who alleged the argument began when the other man suddenly struck him with a coffee mug while playing Xbox.  One man sustained injuries including swelling and bleeding to his left eye. No one was arrested and no citations were issued.

It just goes to show

XBox and Meth do not mix.

Correction needed...

Surely the correct ages of those involved were 4 and 5 instead of 43 and 35. If not ages, then obviously maturity level (reference fighting, playing Xbox, and apparently living with the uncle).

I wonder if they were sent to their rooms without a bedtime snack.

So we know the weapon was the pipe and it happened in the lounge. Now all we need to figure out it who did it. My money is on Colonel Mustard but I'm not completely ruling our Professor Plum just yet.

CPD should start @ The 2 Waffle Houses and take all their coffee mugs and any lead pipes they have laying about the place.

Reality

When playing MethBox (love that one ucbs!) when you whack an oppontent he returns for the next game. Not so in the real world.

I'm thinking this was an experiment gone bad :)..My money's on Professor Plum.
