Man Can’t Get DTV Converter Box to Work, Goes Postal!

Walter Hoover, a 70 year old [drunk] Missouri man who was unable to get his DTV converter box to work correctly decided, instead of calling in the geek squad he would take a gun and repeatedly shoot his TV set. After local authorities were called Mr. Hoover went into a brief standoff before being taken into custody.

Maybe he should have just installed Boxee instead right?

    Glad he didn’t call in the Geek Squad – I’m not trying to get shot at! Good find!
