A Twitch streamer who was angered by his wife interrupting his Fortnite game and appeared to attack her on stream, has reportedly been apprehended by authorities.

The streamer, who goes by ‘MrDeadMoth’ was playing Fortnite when his wife asked that he stopped playing because he had been on too long, to which he reacted angrily.

After the argument became more heated, the streamer stood up and moved out of the camera shot, but his wife could be heard screaming in the background. A child/children can also be heard.

Warning: Footage is distressing.

After returning to his chair and resuming play, the argument continues, and MrDeadMoth gets up for a second time and attacks his partner.

Although none of the attack is visible on camera, the woman’s screams are even more audible on this second occasion.

A Twitter account has been providing updates, after apparently digging through MrDeadMoth’s social media accounts, whose real first name is Luke, claiming that he has been arrested but “no word on charges”.

However, YouTuber and host of DramaAlert, Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem, says both the man and woman have been charged, according to his sources.

The account which shared the original video of the incident on Twitter claims that MrDeadMoth originally ‘evaded’ authorities, but has now been apprehended.

They also claim that all charges against the woman have been dropped. The user, RevvOCE, told Newsweek that they were contacted by a lawyer shortly after posting the clip, who then reached out to Police and Twitch.

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
