Police: Conn. couple arrested after video game dispute turns into Father's Day fight with cops

VERNON, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut authorities said a 54-year-old man and his girlfriend were arrested after a dispute over a noisy video game erupted into a Father's Day struggle with police officers. Vernon police say the man, George Stein, was playing video games Sunday night when a child annoyed by the noise shut the door to the room Stein was in.

Police said Stein got angry and grabbed some kind of weapon, which led his girlfriend's son to call police.

Authorities said the girlfriend, 42-year-old April Devaux, became combative with officers, refused to let go of a front porch post and spat in an officer's face.

Devaux was charged with assault on police and other crimes, while Stein was charged with threatening. Both posted bail.

A message was left at the couple's home Monday.
