Aussie Twitch streamer MrDeadMoth has been charged after the alleged assault of his wife was captured during a Fortnite livestream.
The incident, which can be viewed in its entirety on YouTube, began as MrDeadMoth’s wife is shown throwing objects at the streamer asking him to stop his broadcast. As tensions escalate, MrDeadMoth leaves the livestream’s viewable area and sounds of a fight can be heard in the distance.
“A man has been charged after the alleged assault of a Camden woman was captured as he livestreamed to an online gaming site,” the NSW Police recently confirmed in a Facebook post.
“Officers from Camden Police Area Command were contacted after a witness reported the alleged assault of a 21-year-old woman, believed to have been livestreamed about 8.30pm (Sunday 9 December 2018).”
The NSW Police confirmed the 26-year-old livestreamer was arrested and taken to Narellan Police Station, where he then was charged with common assault.
“Two girls, aged three and 20 months, were at home at the time,” the NSW Police’s post continues. “While the woman was not seriously injured she was distressed and shaken by the incident.”
MrDeadMoth’s Twitch account has been deactivated at the time of writing.
