A Detroit man, Kenneth Repke, has been charged with assault after a friendly game of Monopoly he was involved in turned violent.
54 year old Repke and his neighbor were at his house playing Monopoly, as they often did, when they got into an argument over the sale of some property on the board. The argument heated up and when the neighbor flatly refused to sell Repke Park Place and Broadwalk, he hit her in the face, knocking her glasses off and breaking them.
The neighbor called police upon returning home and reported the assault, tearfully telling them that this was so unlike him to be violent. Repke was brought in for questioning and charged with assault. He could face up to 3 months in jail if convicted.
