A 34-year-old Wisconsin man was, drunkenly, under the impression that his wife, 46, had damaged his action figures. A bitter dispute broke out between the couple, leading to the husband grabbing a log-splitting axe and using it to cause even more damage. According to a blog post by Chief Michael Koval of the Maryland Police department, the suspect began his tirade by forcing his ax blade into a TV, TV stand, a laptop, and several other household items.
“The suspect then moved outside and smashed the family car, chopping off both side mirrors and eventually striking the windshield with such force that the axe become stuck,” Koval’s blog post read.
By the time the suspect, who has still not been identified, had come to his senses, his ax-wielding stunt resulted in approximately $5,000 in damages.
At around 10:03 pm, the man called the police on himself, admitting to drinking too much and overreacting to his damaged “prized property.” After they arrived, the police took the man into custody on charges of disorderly conduct and felony damage to property. He did not resist arrest and was taken to Dane County Jail.
What do you think? Is this the most outrageous overreaction to broken toys you have ever seen, or should this man’s wife had known not to touch his action figures? Let us know in the comments below!
