Everyone has a breaking point. But for some people it only takes petty issues to push them over the top.
32-year-old, Timothy Spiker from Cumberland, Maryland was so upset over his failed internet connection that he resorted to violence. He reportedly threw a cat from the window of a second floor apartment and then punched a female member of his family. After throwing the cat, Spiker purportedly tried to grab a dog which caused a physical struggle between himself and family members at home. Spiker was arrested and charged with assault, animal cruelty and disorderly conduct.
He isn’t the only one with a short temper.
