Meet Michael Podniestrzanski.
The Florida man, 23, was arrested last night after an argument over the new HBO fantasy show “Game of Thrones” turned violent.
As will happen during shows “based on medieval times,” Podniestrzanski and his cousin “got into a verbal altercation” over which of the cable program’s characters was going to win, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.
“Game of Thrones,” which premiered last Sunday night, is based on the first book in a series of “epic fantasy” novels written by George R.R. Martin.
With the argument between Podniestrzanski and Joshua Ross escalating, Podniestrzanski allegedly “took a swing at” his kin. After scuffling for a bit, Podniestrzanski’s cousin “ended up getting thrown in to the front window during the altercation.”
Podniestrzanski was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and transported to the county jail, where he is currently being held.
This is exactly why some people shouldn’t be allowed to watch TV. SMH!
