Guy Shot Over Gaming Noise, Beating Up Mom

3:30 PM – February 17, 2010 by Kevin Parrish

A World of Warcraft gamer apparently lost his cool when Mom told him to keep the noise level down. 27-year-old James Swan was still living with his mother when he tried to choke her to death Sunday night.

Before the incident, he shared a room with his five younger siblings and played World of Warcraft in his little corner of the room. Other than the siblings and his mother, PC gamer James Swan also shared the house with his grandfather.

On the night of the incident, the mother was jolted awake by shouts coming from Swan’s room. Concerned, she entered to find him drunk and playing the MMORPG around 10 p.m.
