We've all been annoyed by racist, homophobic, loudmouth teenagers on Xbox Live before, but a United Kingdom resident finally snapped and took his frustration to the kid's doorstep. 46 year-old Mark Bradford put up with a 13 year-old's online taunts for most of the day, but eventually lost it and tracked down the kid's home address.

When Bradford arrived, he choked the teen until the victim's mother arrived and broke up the scuffle. After the cops arrived and charged Bradford with assault, he remarked “[The kid] 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.”

As a fan of online FPS games, it's hard to not empathize with Bradford's frustration. However, driving to a loudmouth Xbox Live player's house (no matter their age) with your chokin' mitts ready probably isn't the best course of action.
