Man arrested after Monopoly game turns violent
The Inquisitr ^ | Aug 1, 2009

Posted on 08/02/2009 3:24:07 PM PDT by RDTF

A Detroit man, Kenneth Repke, has been charged with assault after a friendly game of Monopoly he was involved in turned violent.

54 year old Repke and his neighbor were at his house playing Monopoly, as they often did, when they got into an argument over the sale of some property on the board. The argument heated up and when the neighbor flatly refused to sell Repke Park Place and Broadwalk, he hit her in the face, knocking her glasses off and breaking them.

The neighbor called police upon returning home and reported the assault, tearfully telling them that this was so unlike him to be violent. Repke was brought in for questioning and charged with assault. He could face up to 3 months in jail if convicted.

Good thing they weren’t playing Chutes and Ladders.

That personal freedom via property thing sure is tough for some to accept isn't it?

I like the "broadwalk".... ; )

Must be another Obama supporter!

They have NO self control and are often violent.

I guess only slightly better than fighting about who gets to be the shoe and who gets to be the car.

I'm just imagining Obama playing Monopoly.

He'd have his ACORN thugs standing around the table stealing property, and he wouldn't even have to move a piece around the board!

Did drugs and/or alcohol play a part in this violent behavior? Looks like it from the guy’s picture.

It was always the game itself that took a beating when I was a kid.....the board flung into the air and little hotels bouncing off the walls, and a bit of yelling too, naturally. I can relate. Damn good fun though, Monopoly.

Nobody sells Park Place and Boardwalk!

Which is why the game turned violent.

He takes that game too seriously. I hope he’s not a realtor.
