Man Sent To Prison For Fight Over AC/DC

Dean Pritchard of the Winnipeg Sun reports: A Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada man has been sentenced to four years in prison for a violent assault sparked by his fondness for AC/DC.

James Ivison, 37, received double-credit of two years for time served, cutting his remaining sentence in half.

Court heard Ivison was living in a Furby Street rooming house in October 2008 when he invited another resident to his room for a couple of beers. Sometime later the 22-year-old man began arguing with Ivison about the music he was playing, specifically AC/DC.

"The victim then started to question the accused's sexual preference, angering the accused," Crown attorney Dave Mann told court.

An ensuing fight spilled out into the hallway, with the victim grabbing a fry pan and Ivison a kitchen knife.
