There are some people out there that take video games a little too seriously — this is a prime example of that. Two men were playing a game against one-another on the PlayStation 3 when a dispute broke out between the them.
Instead of turning off the game and walking away and leaving it at that, Eric LaChapelle decided to take things to the next level. LaChapelle drove to the house of the person he had been playing online with–18 year old Cory Chalich–and when he arrived — he assaulted him.
In what can be described as an act of self-defense, Chalich grabbed a knife and threatened LaChapelle. This prompted LaChapelle to run, but he was arrested just minutes later by the Police.
Both men are being charged with misdemeanors, but were released by Police. LaPucelle was charged with third degree assault and Chalich was charged with second degree menacing. It makes you wonder what the argument was over in the first place, but either way it should not end up like this. These two need to get their gamer rage under control — that’s for sure.
