Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest Ensue

October 11, 2010 -

A Pennsylvania man was arrested on a variety of charges after his live-in girlfriend, enraged that the unemployed man was playing games all day, snatched his PlayStation and took off in her car.

42-year old Darren Suchon took off after Colleen Frable down Route 248, driving her 1996 Porsche. According to a story on the Morning Call, Suchon was “waving his arms and yelling, trying to get her to pull over,” and when she eventually stopped at a traffic light, his car rear ended hers.

Suchon was yelling at Frable “to give him the PlayStation and trying to force down her driver side window.” Two men from a nearby business came out, scaring off Suchon.

Frable had reportedly taken Suchon’s console to work with her before in a bid to curb her boyfriend's gaming. Suchon said that he, “…just wanted the game, I would never hurt her. I just wanted the game."

The man was charged with simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment, disorderly conduct, reckless driving and driving with a suspended or revoked license. He is currently in Northampton County Prison with bail set at $25,000.

 Of course not: He is a male, and according to most laws and lawmakers in the US, any male in a domestic dispute is immediately guilty.

Sorry, that's a bit of a stretch: The first person to file charges wins, because law enforcement and judges are too damn lazy to actually investigate. Which is why when my buddy had his ex-girl flip out on him, beat him, hit him, stab him with a knife, and try to run him over (he found her cheating and told her he was leaving), the cops arrested HIM. Because she filed charges first. Even though they had to take him to the ER, he had defensive wounds, and she didn't have a single scratch or bruise. She stalked him and sent him threatening texts for months, and he wound up paying almost $6000 so far in legal fees and bail.

In this case, I can almost guarantee she won't be charged, prosecuted, or found guilty in any way. Though were their situations reversed, he would probably still be the one in jail. Ain't the law great?!

She should have been charged and she bears 50% of the responsbility for this asinine behavior. They both sound like losers to me.

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

HE was arrested?

That's bullshit! (Pardon my french)

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

No French there...

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

 He should have just dumped the brat.  

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

Ok, I'm not defending this guy's actions, but, he was just her boyfriend, not her husband.

If she had such a huge problem with his gaming she should have just dumped him.

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

True. It would've been much better than doing something to aggravate such a man, but I get the feeling, now that I think of it, that there's something more to this than what we currently know. Like, that perhaps Ms. Frable was looking to teach her boyfriend a lesson, and had the intention of fencing the game system?

I just hope he doesn't prove to be so unstable that when he eventually gets out of jail, he doesn't decide to get a little "revenge", if you know what I mean.

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

First things first, so we can get this out the way:  Great photo choice.

This could all have been avoided if she didn't take the PlayStation in the first place, I'm just saying.

Assuming that he was speeding (defined as reckless driving at ~15 over the limit, depending on your jurisidction) while chasing her, it can logically be presumed that she was doing the same, and thus is just as liable for reckless driving charges (which will probably never come).

Likewise, because she took the PlayStation without permission... twice, it can constitute charges of theft... which - again - will likely never happen. Harrassment is also applicable towards her as well.

Simple assault, he never touched her according to the articles. Where was the assault?

I won't even get started on the potential charges of incitement for taking his PlayStation in the first place.

Seriously, not playing devil's advocate by any means, I'm just saying that charges can run both ways on this one.

Assault doesn't require touching someone.  Battery does.

Thanks for the clarification. I always thought it was a black and white thing, either being assault or not without room for grey.

At least she didn't video tape herself destroying the console like some of the chicks on YouTube. Despite his claims of not wanting to hurt her, I have no doubt her life would be in danger if she'd gone that route. The man is clearly not very stable.

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

I take it she wont be charged with theft then.

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

Probably not.  This guy does not sound stable enough to file a police report.... and his over the top reaction would likely not endear the police to help him.

Re: Girl Takes Boyfriend’s PlayStation, Chase & Arrest ...

The PlayStation's likely be held as evidence against him anyway, so I doubt he could do anything legally to try to reclaim it.

MechaCrashThe explanation for the misanthropy of the character in Hatred comes from "we want to be super edgy and get those controversy dollars."01/29/2015 - 8:34pm
Andrew EisenI'm interested in giving it a try. I think it has some cool ideas but I haven't been "feeling it" when watching continuous gameplay.01/29/2015 - 8:04pm
Matthew Wilsonif you dont know, the code name STEAM demo is out, and it it downloading very slowly. It might be more popular that I thought, or it could just be the eshop.01/29/2015 - 8:02pm
Goth_SkunkPlayer/Playable Character, yes. As opposed to the NPC.01/29/2015 - 7:36pm
Andrew EisenOh, Player Character! Heh, that one took me a few moments!01/29/2015 - 7:29pm
Goth_SkunkIt really bothers me that there is no explanation for the PC's misanthropy. Even the Saw movie series, despite the level of violence in them, had a premise that fascinated me. The only thing about Hatred that fascinates me is the controversy.01/29/2015 - 7:27pm
Goth_SkunkI can't think of a time a game has made me simultaneously want to both buy it and not buy it. On the one hand, I find the premise disturbing and repulsive. On the other hand, I find the controversy fascinating and want to play it just to say I did.01/29/2015 - 7:25pm

Andrew EisenYeah, what I mean is I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where I have the option of up to 50Mbps if I want to pay for it. Meant that as an anecdote; didn't mean it to come across as a "you're wrong!" Sorry 'bout that!01/29/2015 - 2:06pm
