An Oregon couple discovered an unexpected benefit of being a Wii gamer earlier this week: When your drunken girlfriend hurls the console in your face, it does less damage than an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.
According to her boyfriend, 31-year-old Rebecca Varina Sloskowski was intoxicated on the evening of January 10, so he left her apartment between the hours of 7pm and 11pm to let her cool off.
This never works, incidentally. Leaving an angry female to cool off only gives them more time to think up horrible things to do to you in response, like throwing video game consoles.
Upon returning to his girlfriend's apartment, Sloskowski allegedly became violent, picking up various objects and throwing them at him until she finally hurled the four pound gaming console, hitting him square in the face. The victim suffered a swollen lip and two chipped teeth.
Police were called to the scene, and Sloskowski was arrested and charged with second-degree assault.
I'm guessing the charge would have been the same no matter what video game console she threw in his face. I bet she's kicking herself right now for not purchasing the original PlayStation 3.
