Man nearly slams car into girlfriend over PS3 scuffle

You are Darren Suchon, a man from Pennsylvania who apparently really likes his video games. Actually, if you really are this man, welcome to GamesRadar, but you need to get off this website and start preparing for your court date.

Suchon has been charged with reckless endangerment, simple assault, reckless driving, harassment, and disorderly conduct. Oh, yeah, he also got slammed for driving on a suspended license (imagine that).

According to the police report, his 36-year-old girlfriend Colleen Frable and he were having a dispute over how much time he spent at home playing games. At the apex of the argument, Frable grabbed Suchon's PS3 and took it with her as she drove off to work. But Suchon was right behind in his own car and started gunning after her. Frable was forced to pull over into a local parking lot.

Witnesses said they saw Suchon pressed up against the driver's side window, screaming at Frable and saying he was going to break the window.

When the police were called, Suchon reportedly said, "When she stopped, I just wanted the game. I would never hurt her. I just wanted the game." Well if that's not a touching moment I don't know what is.

Suchon is currently behind bars under $25,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear for a hearing on October 18.
