Angry Janesville Man Barbecues Slow Modem
Wife Says Man Has History Of Violence With Slow Dial-Up Connections

POSTED: 4:06 p.m. CST November 7, 2002

JANESVILLE, Wis. -- Janesville police responded to a smoke complaint around 1 a.m. Tuesday and found a man barbecuing his computer modem.

The 39-year-old man told police the modem was operating too slowly, and he decided grilling it might make it dial up faster.

The man's wife told police that this wasn't the first time her husband got upset with a slow modem and that he has smashed them or tossed them out the door before.

Police doused the coals with water and told the man's wife to make sure he went to bed.

No one was injured, but police said the modem was a total loss
