A hotel guest staying with two co-workers in Jacksonville, Florida allegedly resorted to some extreme measures to tune into his favorite show.
TV news station WJXT reports that Brooklyn, New York man Barran Prakash, 47, wanted his co-workers to change the TV channel so he could watch "American Idol."
Like all friendly arguments that happen over the popular singing talent show, things turned very violent when Prakash grabbed a large butcher knife and held it to one man's throat, according to the report.
One of the co-workers was able to take the knife away when Prakash attacked him. Luckily, no one was reported to be hurt after police took Prakash into custody.
It's also good to note that the show was not even scheduled to air that night.
I wonder if they have DVRs in the Duval County Jail, where Prakash is being held for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
