Mark Bradford, 46, of Plymouth, England lost it when his character from “Call of Duty: Black Ops” was gunned down by a 13-year-old kid. The two were playing online and chatting through headsets. The teen also called Bradford a name after killing him off. Well, boo-hoo.
This father of three raced across town to the kid’s house (this is why you don’t tell people you meet on-line where you live) and started choking him with both hands around the neck. The teen’s mother came to his rescue. He suffered a few scratches but other than that was fine.
“It wasn’t malice. I just grabbed him. I’ve seen him since and apologized. The injuries weren’t that bad but I do regret it,” Bradford told the court Thursday.
