Colorado Springs police officers are investigating a bizarre crime spree that started after a man reportedly got mad over a Wii game.

Witnesses told police a man went after several people in the Meadows Mobile Home Park with a bat, bit his mother on the ankle, intentionally rammed several cars, and hit a pedestrian and a tree.

When the victims followed the driver, after a short distance he stopped, got out of his car and allegedly used a BB gun to break out the rear window of a vehicle, according to the police report.

Police said when they arrived Thursday at 5 p.m. the suspect, James Williams, ran at a police cruiser and jumped on the hood.

The police report said when Williams jumped off the cruiser, Officer Erwin Paladino used his Taser on Williams, then arrested him.

The police report didn't go into detail about what happened during the Wii game or what game he was playing.
