Police had to taser a Colorado man who went on a rampage incited by his fury over a Wii game.

According to the police report, the suspect, James Williams, got into his car and rammed several other vehicles as well as hitting a pedestrian and a tree. Several residents in the park followed him and when they confronted him, he got out of his car and used his BB gun on another vehicle. When an officer arrived, Williams ran at his police cruiser and jumped on the hood. When he jumped off, Williams was tased by the officer and arrested.

Witnesses told police the man went after several people with a bat, and bit his mother on the ankle.

The police report didn't go into detail about what happened during the Wii game or what game he was playing.

Williams has been charged with assault. His age has not been released.

The Witcher 2 has a superbly written story and on easy the combat plays out like an action RPG so it is great for people like myself who don't enjoy the in depth nature of most RPG's combat system. ...
