FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A North Texas man has been arrested after being accused of shooting his wife's laptop computer because she was playing loud music on it.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that 44-year-old Gary Lykins has been charged with deadly conduct for discharging a firearm.

He remained jailed on Saturday, held with no bond. Jail records didn't list an attorney for Lykins.

Police say they were called to Lykins' Fort Worth home around 2 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say his wife received minor injuries from computer debris after Lykins fired his weapon.

Authorities say Lykins barricaded himself in his home before he was taken into custody.
