Australian Fortnite streamer is accused of allegedly assaulting his partner during the live broadcast of Twitch.
Policemen from the Camden police were contacted after a witness reported a supposed attack on Sunday night.
The 26-year-old man, known for his MrDeadMoth handle, can be heard live to argue with a 21-year-old woman who has repeatedly asked him to stop playing the game. Clips of the incident have become viral on Twitter.
– Can not you? I said I'd be out, "the man said before leaving. Then, what seems to be the sound of slap can be heard from the camera. The woman responded, calling her "a woman of bass", and she could hear her wailing in the background.
"Do not hit me in the face," she said. "Do you hear that, all of you who are there?" He just hit me in the face.
The argument lasted for a few more minutes. None of the alleged assault was captured on the camera, but a woman and a child could hear shouting in the background after what appeared to be a physical disorder.
"When you're a dog, you do not pay the bills," he said.
The police arrested the man later tonight and has since been charged with a general assault and served a warrant (the equivalent of a restraining order). He received a conditional warranty and is expected to appear in court on Thursday.
"While the woman was not seriously injured, she was worried and shaken by the incident," New South Wales police said in an e-mail statement.
The police confirmed that two girls aged three and 20 months were at home during the incident. Man's messages for Twitch and Twitter appear to be offline.
This is not the first time a gaming stream has seen a supposed attack. In China last year, a professional League of Legends player Li Wei Jun was fired from his team after being charged with assaulting his girlfriend during his life.
