Although the government and industry leaders are spending millions to educate the public about the DTV switch and get converter boxes into as many American households as they can, this was not enough for at least one man, who would apparently rather have no TV at all than suffer through several minutes of technical installation troubleshooting.

He had a converter box, but couldn’t get it to work – and rather than call the DTV hotline for some technical help, he decided to load his gun and shoot several times into his TV set.  As KARE-TV Minneapolis-St. Paul reports, the 70 year old man is now charged with unlawful use of a firearm.  He was taken into custody after a short standoff with police.  His wife indicated that he had been drinking prior to shooting his TV.
