D&D Player Goes On Trial For Killing A Co-Worker

.... With a homemade samurai sword.

Prosecutors say Flemons, then 30, was angry because of constant bullying by the victim, Anthony Williams, and other co-workers at Peerless Metal Powders & Abrasive.

But Flemons' lawyer says he is schizophrenic with a psychotic obsession with fantasy role-playing games, including Dungeons & Dragons.

Psychotic obsession, huh? I guess that would back this up:

Witnesses told police that, after the killing, Flemons bought a beer and cigar at a nearby convenience store. He then returned to the scene and positioned Williams' body as if on a cross. Then he opened the beer and lit the cigar as he waited for the police to arrive, his colleagues said.

I'm not gonna' say anything. I know there are a lot of people out there that played D&D back in the day. Some maybe even still do. All I'm saying is that if you see someone walkin' down the street with a disgruntled look on his/her face who's using a pair of 20-sided dice as Japanese stress balls, it may be a good time to take up jogging.
