Kyle Drinkwine takes music very seriously.

The 24-year old Wisconsin man allegedly assaulted a karaoke singer and his friend last Friday because he didn't like the way the man was performing his favorite song.

Isn't that the whole point of karaoke?

28-year old James Mischler, the singer, was performing Holy Diver, by the 80's metal band Dio.

After the punchfest, police chased Drinkwine down on foot. He was easily caught and obviously given a Breathalyzer test.

Surprise! He was twice the legal limit!

Drinkwine was booked into the Pierce County Jail on charges of battery and disorderly conduct.

The following are (supposedly) safe karaoke songs: Respect, Sweet

Caroline, and Stand By Me.
