Alcohol and Domestic Violence

On Tuesday evening a gamer beat his pregnant wife while under the influence of alcohol for interrupting a game of Fortenite. The defendant had been drinking for the majority of the afternoon while playing his video game. According to friends of the defendant, he had always had a bit of a short temper, but it only ever came out when drinking. This was the first time that any of them had heard of the defendant carrying out an act of physical violence. They believe that alcohol is to blame for his decision.

The defendant was live streaming his game at the time, and thousands of people across the world that were watching his live stream witnessed the sounds of the drunk man assaulting his pregnant wife. The dispute started out as a normal fight that a husband and a wife might typically have.

The wife had cooked the defendant dinner, and the man refused to leave his video game to go eat dinner. The man became increasingly irritated with his wife until the situation escalated into a full-blown assault. The amount of alcohol that the man had consumed prior to assaulting his wife may have played a roll in his violent behavior.

Viewers of the life scream could hear the defendants other two children screaming in horror as he started beating his pregnant wife. The incident was only reported to the police because one of the concerned viewers managed to hack the defendants account to gain access to his personal information. The victim refused to comment, but the victim’s mother publicly thanked the person who went out of their way to make sure the police were called.

Thanks to the viewer that contacted the police, the defendant is being charged with assault and will likely be granted conditional bail.
