Default Fight with computer brings SWAT team. YAY fun with Computing. Case pending.

A 32-year-old Boulder man who had opened his apartment's
patio door to enjoy Wednesday's unusually warm weather
was later overheard screaming threats and seen waving
what appeared to be a handgun, prompting a
maintenance worker to call police.

Officers, as a precaution, evacuated the man's apartment
building and called SWAT officers to assist in defusing
the situation.

It turned out that the man was simply upset at his computer
which he had called a "bitch" he "wanted to kill
," police said and the gun was a
plastic pellet gun,
not the .45-caliber automatic handgun it was made to resemble.

"It was alarming and concerning and expensive for us
but the man's conduct didn't warrant any criminal charges,
" Deputy Police Chief Dave Hayes said.

Three people were evacuated from the man's eight-unit building,
at 3350 Bridger Trail in the Remington Post condominium
complex at the intersection of 30th Street and Iris Avenue.

The 3 p.m. incident was resolved by about 4:30 p.m. The man,
whose name wasn't released because he wasn't arrested on
suspicion of any crime, was cooperative once police
contacted him. Police did not confiscate the
pellet gun, but with the man's permission,
they took another firearm from his home
"for safekeeping."

"He was very surprised, embarrassed and apologetic," Hayes said.

Hundreds of people driving near the housing complex
which is adjacent to banks, a grocery store and the
Alterra retirement community were detoured as
police officers directed traffic to keep residents
of the complex from going home. Many people
watched from sidewalks to find out why SWAT
officers were carrying large rifles around the
housing complex.

To damn funny.. I think people should mind their own business sometimes.

Default Yup, yup

It doesn't mention Everquest, but we all know he was playing Everquest.
Specifically, it sounds like he was dealing with SOE's stellar customer service.

Leave it to Boulder police. They can get you for running a stop sign or shooting your computer with a pellet gun, but they still haven't figured out the JonBenet thing. Crackerjack group, the Boulder police.
