Wisconsin Man Chops Up His Own Home When He Thinks His Wife Damaged His Action Figures

I guess you can call it The Adventures of Axe Man. In Madison, Wisconsin, a 34-year-old man went into a rage when he believed that his wife had damaged his collection of action figures. He grabbed an axe and proceeded to destroy much of his house and car. He then called police on himself. This all makes the charges rather interesting.

The man had been drinking and first took a large axe to his television, laptop, and household items. He then smashed up the family car and chopped off both mirrors. The axe then got stuck in the windshield. That is when the called the police on himself, according to the Madison Police Chief Mike Koval’s blog. The damages amounted to $5,000. However, the loss was his and his wife’s.

I would have thought the charge would be domestic violence alone and indeed one charge is a domestic related disorderly charged. However he was also charged with felony damage to his own property.

  1. I know Winter is Long in Wisconsin, but this is ridiculous. I guess he showed her.

    The problem is, she’ll probably stay with him, an auto axe murderer. Sorry, but when a guy starts chopping the house around your head into kindling, it’s time to leave.

    I don’t believe he was charged with felony property damage against himself; it’s because it’s community property. It’s his wife’s share that he’s guilty of damaging. He could torch his couch if he wanted, but not if half of it belonged to his spouse.

    How many people are in jail because they lost their temper over stupid stuff?
