Judge Bans Teen From Playing Video Games. Uh, What?

A US judge has banned a 17-year-old from playing video games after he was arrested and charged with assaulting his mother when she unplugged his PlayStation 3. So, this kind of thing doesn’t happen just with Xbox 360 players, just sayin’.

The Racine Journal Times, according to WISN-TV in the video below, reported that Jeffrey Ehlers, 17, was cussin’ out the game console on Sunday “because he was losing,” at an unspecified game. (However, props to local news for specifying PlayStation 3!) When he wouldn’t heed his mother’s demands to calm down, she pulled the plug on the console.

The outcome was similar to another conflict between a mum and a floppy-haired teen with a DGAF expression in his booking photo. Ehlers attacked his mum, said cops, who were called to the home.

If convicted, Ehlers could face up to 90 days in the slammer.
