Man Shoots Computer, Cited by Police

A man in Colorado got a little frustrated with his home computer and pumped eight bullets into the machine. He was cited by police.

Lucas Hinch, 37, of Colorado Springs, accepted his citation with good humor, police told the Colorado Springs Gazette. According to the paper, Hinch told officers that he hadn’t realized that he was breaking the law when he brought the computer into an alley and blasted away.

He was cited for discharging a firearm in the city.

Police Lt. Jeff Strossner did not want to say what what kind of computer it was but “he got tired of fighting with [it] for the last several months.”

We hear you, Lucas.

The computer was disabled as a result of the shots. A judge will decide what the penalty will be for Mr. Hinch.
