Xbox Rage?

A Utah man might think twice from now on about telling his 19 year old stepson to turn off his Xbox while the kid is in the middle of a game. It seems the stepfather came home and found his stepson doing what kids do these days, playing video games on his Xbox. The man asked the boy to stop playing the game and to turn off the TV. When the man returned after getting the mail he found the kid still playing, so he reached down and turned the Xbox off himself.

This set the kid off and he started screaming at the man and then threw 2 remote control devices at him. According to the police report the stepfather left the house and went across the street where he called the police. Still enraged the stepson followed the man outside and proceeded to attack the stepfather’s custom 2009 Harley with a knife. The attack was so vicious that it knocked the bike down. The boy continued to punch and stab the motorcycle until the knife’s blade broke off the handle.

But the boy wasn’t finished assaulting the motorcycle as he then got into his 2000 Nissan Maxima and rammed the car into the motorcycle and pushed it from the driveway the whole way through the garage into the wall. The boy then fled the scene to a friend’s house where police finally contacted him.

After being arrested the boy said he ran over the motorcycle on purpose. He also told police that he had missed taking his last 2 doses of anti-anxeity and anti-depression medication. The suspect said the lack of medication may have caused his actions. The boy was charged with 2  class-B misdemeanors for domestic violence simple assault and leaving the scene of an accident, plus a second-degree felony for domestic violence criminal mischief.

The police report stated that the stepfather had estimated the value of the motorcycle at $40,000 and that it had sustained significant damage to the front forks, fender, frame, and gas tank. Total damage for the incident to the bike, garage and 2 broken remotes were estimated to be in excess of $25,000.
