Colorado Springs, Colo. (The Weekly Vice) - William Gooch, a 50-year-old Colorado man was jailed Sunday after he threw a temper tantrum at his estranged wife's home - and nearly got himself killed in the process.
According to the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, Gooch crashed his car into his wife's home around 11 a.m. Sunday, set the home on fire and then barricaded himself inside as it burned.
Investigators say the estranged wife, who obviously didn't want any part of Gooch's idiotic behavior, slipped out of the house unharmed.
After SWAT team negotiators convinced Gooch to come outside, Gooch reportedly grabbed a gun and exited through a window. Gooch fired one shot as he climbed out, however the bullet hit the ground.
Once outside, deputies subdued the village idiot with a stun gun.
This is not the first time Gooch has thrown a tantrum by barricading himself inside a home. Gooch locked himself inside his home in August of 2009, which led to a 6 hour stand-off with police.
Gooch was booked into the El Paso County Jail on charges of arson and felony menacing and failing to leave a residence upon the request of a peace officer.
