Guy Gets Wii, Gets Totally Pissed Off, Gets Arrested

Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas? Twenty-six year-old Heath Blom didn't. He was given a Wii, got mad, and a fight broke out leading to a double arrest. Oh, the holidays.

Blom and his 24 year-old girlfriend, Randi Young, were both arrested for misdemeanor "domestic-related" assault charges. An altercation broke out over Christmas presents. Police arrived at the Blom residence on Christmas Day to discover the couple bruised and battered.

"Heath Blom wanted a remote-controlled aeroplane for Christmas, and not the Wii," said Sgt. Kuffer Kaltenborn. Blom's grandmother gave him a Nintendo Wii, which he scoffed at, causing his girlfriend to call him names "for not liking the Wii."

According to Young, "He [Heath Blom]said he hated it. It hurt her [his grandmother's]feelings... When he didn't get the plane, he got really upset. He acted like a 10-year-old kid."

A fight ensued with Blom supposedly dragging Young down two flights of stairs — by her hair. Blom claims Young punched him in the eye three times.

If only they went online and settled this like adults with a good old fashioned flame war.
