Man Jailed After Attacking His Cousin Over Game of Thrones

Do you have Game of Thrones fever? You aren't alone. We're just two episodes into HBO's new fantasy series, and its intricate tale of dwarves, direwolves, and doggy-styling has already earned it a passionate following. In fact, one fan feels so strongly about it, he's currently sitting in jail.

It all began last night, when police were called in to investigate a disturbance at the Florida home of 23-year-old Michael Podniestrzanski and his cousin, Joshua Ross. From the police report:

Mr. Posniestrzanski stated they were watching a new show on HBO called "Game of Thrones." During the show they began to talk about who was going to win. Both subjects got in a verbal altercation over this show based on medieval times. Mr. Posniestrzanski stated they then fought for a bit and that Mr. Ross ended up getting thrown in to [sic] the front window during the altercation.

He actually tossed his cousin through a window! I salute Posniestrzanski's level of savage commitment to the series he so clearly loves. But if they wanted to be completely authentic — let's be honest — this Game of Thrones cosplay needed a lot more incest. [The Smoking Gun, photos via HBO.com, TSG]
