A New York man has been arrested for threatening an 11-year-old student who had just beaten him in Fortnite. The man, Michael Aliperti, then threatened the boy by telling him that he was going to shoot him and "stated that he knew where he went to school". Aliperti was then arrested and charged with "aggravated harassment and acting in a manner to injure a child".

After being eliminated by the 11-year-old, Michael Aliperti, 45, allegedly threatened the boy verbally through the XBox system, through the system's messaging service and via text.

Aliperti's attorney tells News 12 that his client is a father of three with no criminal record and in the middle of a contested divorce.
