Crazy things happen when sane people get in the way of a gamer and his World of Warcraft.
27 year old James Swan of Manatee Florida attacked his mother at around 10 p.m. on February 11th. The reason? She tapped him on the shoulder and tried to quiet him down so that her grandchildren could fall asleep. Seems like a gentle gesture, but he grabbed her hair and threw her down.
The woman was able to get to the kitchen to call 911, but Swan ripped the phone off the wall, banged his head into the drywall and then grabbed his mother and threw her on the floor. He then back to choke her, "saying he was going to kill her," the report states.Swan is now sitting in his cozy local jail hoping for a breakout from his WOW raiding party.
Swan's grandfather — and the father of the woman — tried to stop the attack, but Swan warned that he would kill him, too.
The older man retrieved a gun out of a closet. He returned to the living room, and while the gun was still in the holster, Swan grabbed him by the arm and the gun fired, according to the sheriff's office. The bullet grazed Swan behind the left ear, and struck the living room window and the wood frame of the porch.
