Man's attempt to kill spider confused with domestic violence, sparks police call

AUSTRALIA (FOX 32 News) - A man who was being extremely loud when killing a spider ended up having neighbors call police on him reporting a suspected domestic violence incident, according to a report.

When cops arrived on scene in Sydney, Australia, they could hear a man screaming hysterically: “I’m going to kill you, you’re dead! Die! Die!”

Police knocked on the man’s door and he answered out of breath.

Police: We had a report of a domestic and a women screaming, where is she?
Male: I don't know what you're talking about, I live alone.
Police: Come on mate, people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit.
Police: Come on mate, what have you done to her?
Male: It was a spider.
Police: Sorry??
Male: It was a spider, a really big one!!
Police: What about the woman screaming?
Male: Yeah sorry that was me, I really, really hate spiders.

What neighbors thought was a serious incidence of domestic violence was in fact the man chasing a spider around his home with a can of spray to kill it.

The police report concluded: "After a very long pause, some laughter and a quick look in the unit to make sure there was no injured party (apart from the spider) we left."
