Wii Rage Triggers Crime Spree

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado. – Police officers are investigating a bizarre crime spree that started after a man reportedly got mad over a Wii game.Witnesses told police a man went after several people in the Meadows Mobile Home Park with a bat, bit his mother on the ankle, intentionally rammed several cars, and hit a pedestrian and a tree.

When the victims followed the driver, after a short distance he stopped, got out of his car and allegedly used a BB gun to break out the rear window of a vehicle, according to the police report.

That guy is just straight NUTS.  From the picture in the linked article, looks like the police might have drove his face into the ground. No doubt he was probably fighting them even after he got tasered.

I wonder if he shot at the vehicle to break the window, or he he used the BB gun itself to smash the window? I haven’t shot my BB gun in a long time, but I don’t remember it being that powerful.  I suppose BB gun technology possibly has come a long way.

There was some random episode of Mythbusters where they shot out the back window of a car repeatedly with a BB gun. Just won’t work on the front window.

Might have been a CO2gun, which are more powerful.

True. I had one of those too. It was funny because the first few shots were the best, then it wen’t downhill from there as the CO2 lost pressure. I remember a few times I screwed the CO2 cartridge in crooked, and it started shooting gas out of that area so I threw it down and it frosted up my gun until the tank was empty.

The rear windows on most cars aren’t safety glass. Most modern bb guns could probably take them out no problem.

Interesting, I wonder why that is? (that they are not safety glass)
