A North Texas man has been arrested after being accused of shooting his wife's laptop computer because she was playing loud music on it. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that 44-year-old Gary Lykins has been charged with deadly conduct for discharging a firearm. He remained jailed on Saturday, held with no bond. Jail records didn't list an attorney for Lykins. Police say they were called to Lykins' Fort Worth home around 2 a.m. Saturday. Authorities say his wife received minor injuries from computer debris after Lykins fired his weapon. Authorities say Lykins barricaded himself in his home before he was taken into custody.

Who knew you could be arrested for shooting your computer? He didn't shoot the wife so seems a bit of an overreaction from the cops. No further info on his mental condition but does look like there's a previous mug shot.

Did Elvis get arrested for shooting his tv?

I think Bubba shot the jukebox last night.
He said it played a sad song, and made him cry.

He should have just “accidentally” spilled his beer on it.

Was it a justifiable homicide? Maybe he just took kilobytes seriously?
