Kids these days, I swear.

Via Gizmodo:

A young man in Portsmouth, NH, got a Nintendo Wii for Christmas this year from his grandparents. But he didn't want a Wii. So he threw a temper tantrum.

The only problem is that he's not six years old. He's 25.

When he started complaining about receiving the Wii, his girlfriend told him he was being ungrateful and making his grandparents feel bad. So he hit her. Then she hit back, and things escalated.

According to the Boston Herald, "Police were called to South Street home where the couple lived with Blom’s grandparents at 1:55 p.m. Christmas day. Officers arrested the pair upon observing bruises on each of them.

"Portsmouth police said tempers flared because the boyfriend was smarting over not getting the present he wished for. 'Heath Blom wanted a remote-controlled airplane for Christmas, and not the Wii,' said Sgt. Kuffer Kaltenborn.

"Blom, a flooring contractor, said the cops got it wrong, and that he had asked his grandparents to get him the $1,000 airplane for his birthday next April. 'You can’t fly an RC plane in the snow,' he said.
