Father of three, Mark Bradford, is unemployed and angry after being taunted by a 13-year-old schoolboy who killed him during an online game of Call Of Duty on PlayStation. So angry, in fact, that he tracked the boy down and let him know how pissed he really was.
The man from Plymouth, Devon, decided to go to the boy’s friend’s house and let him know that he didn’t appreciate being taunted by placing his hands around the child’s throat. Luckily, the mother saw this happen and was able to pull Bradford off the boy with some scrapes and a red neck. Without an apology or explanation, Bradford left the scene.
According to the adult’s defense, he had some mental issues that came about when the child called him a name and he just ‘lost it’. Well, that’s pretty fucking obvious. I mean who in the hell tracks down a child who he’s been playing video games with and attempts to strangle him over name calling? That is fucking crazy.
Bradford admitted the attack was ‘moment of madness’ as the child ‘would not shut up’.
He said: ‘I’d been playing the whole day and he was baiting me and baiting me and just would not shut up.
‘He went on and on and I just lost it. I hold my hands up, I lost the plot. In a moment of madness I went round to his house. I didn’t know what I was going to do.
‘It wasn’t malice. I just grabbed him. I’ve seen him since and apologised. We’ve played online too. He’s actually a decent kid.’
Bradford admitted one count of assault by beating at Plymouth Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
Bradford is thought to be a loosely-connected friend of the boy’s family
