Man Shoots TV Over Digital Conversion


Posted February 23, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

This week in Missouri, a 70 year-old Elvis Presley fan named Walter Hoover was so upset about his digital converter box not working, he pulled a gun and shot his own television in cold blood. Ouch! Right in the screen!

Police responded to reports of gunfire at Hoover's home, and after a brief standoff, took the vigilante viewer into custody where he was charged with unlawful use of a firearm. Hoover's wife later told the police that her husband had been drinking.

Sadly, Hoover will now miss PBS's broadcasts of both Nova and Frontline, and he won't be invited to the best cocktail parties.

Whether the bullet helped his television decide to start working right was not known at press time.

So what would cause you to shoot your TV?
