A man has been arrested after shooting his son in the head over an Xbox 360 argument. The 17 year old boy asked his father James Stanley Niedosik, 60, to check out the graphics on a Xbox 360 game. The father refused and they started arguing. The son then handed his father a rifle and asked him to shot him, so the father did. The boy survived and is in hospital. The boys mother says police must have the scenario wrong and that it must have been accidental.

QUOTE

The boy ended up in Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest with a .22-caliber bullet lodged in his skull behind his ear. Niedosik ended up in Monroe County Prison on $250,000 bail, charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

A woman identifying herself as Jeanie Niedosik, James' ex-wife and the boy's mother, answered the phone at the Jackson Township residence Saturday evening.

''One's in jail, one's in the hospital,'' she said. ''I won't know exactly what happened until I talk to [my son]. He's incoherent yet; they have him heavily sedated.''

She said she wasn't present for the shooting but doesn't believe it unfolded the way police described.

''He did the shooting but it was an accidental thing that took place,'' she said.

We picked the PS3 first because we didn't have a blu-ray player, and we snagged it as a before christmas special 2 years ago...? We got a 80g and 15 free blu-ray dvds =3

After we pay off the air conditioner, we plan on tossing the elite on to one of our credit cards.

Oh snap, being a game designer and developer is one of my reasons for wanting to grow up! I mean, it's on my top 5 jobs I want when I'm older~ if they abolish video games I'd be out of a reason to live! hahahaha!! yeah I like to laugh at my own misfortunes tongue.gif Actually if we really want to get rid of the problem I suggest we try getting rid of the psychotic people first and if all else fails I guess I could sacrifice my life's goal. biggrin.gif
