The gnome is to roam, not to be thrown

You've undoubtedly seen the Travelocity commercials with the roaming gnome. Have you seen the one with the guy who throws the gnome through a glass window at his stepdaughter?

Wait. That wasn't a commercial. It was just a guy who got out of control, and not surprisingly, alcohol was involved. He also punched some holes in the wall and cut the telephone lines in the house.

The man was jailed on $25,000 bond, charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment, and I'm guessing, assault of a commercial icon.
