Online PS3 Fight Turns in to Real Life Fight

As sensible gamers, when we have confrontations with other people during online games, we make derisive jokes or just mute and block the offending douchebag.

And then there are people with too much testosterone who take things far too seriously. Take for example Eric LaChapelle, who after an online fight succeeding a bit of PS3 multiplayer failed to do the sensible thing and walk away. Instead, he got in his car and drove to Cory Chalich, his online oopponent’s house to deliver a personal beating.

LaChapelle proceeded to “assault” the younger Chalich, who drew a knife in self-defense, causing the not-so-tough-now-are-you LaChapelle to flee the scene with his tail tucked firmly between his legs.

The fuzz apprehended the scrappy runaway just moments later. Both are now up for misdemeanours; LaPucelle was charged with third degree assault and Chalich was charged with second degree menacing. Second degree menacing? That’s an awesome sounding charge right there.

This really isn’t news, but it does raise two interesting questions; Firstly…what game do you think they were playing? And has anyone ever pissed you off so much online that you’ve contemplated “taking this outside” as it were?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
