A popular Australian “Fortnite” player was arrested and charged with assaulting his spouse on Sunday, with thousands of witnesses in the form of Twitch live-stream viewers.
26-year-old Luke “MrDeadMoth” reportedly struck his wife, who is pregnant with his third child.
In the video, Munday’s wife, Grace, can be heard asking him to stop playing video games and eat dinner.
He tells her he will be out soon, which prompts her to throw things at him. Getting up, he can be heard slapping her, causing her to cry.
“You hear that, all you people out there?” she said loudly. “He just hit me in the face.”
The fight escalated, and children can be heard shouting in the background. Eventually, the fight came to a head after his wife tried to knock out the computer, and screaming can be heard as he charged at her.
Viewers quickly alerted police, who arrested him at his Sydney residence.
The Munday family’s two young girls were found at the home when the incident occurred.
According to CBS News, Munday was charged with assault and granted bail. He is scheduled to appear in a local courthouse on Thursday.
