MELBOURNE (WCMH) — What do you do when your brother pees on your car and puts the video on Facebook?

Rhys Holman decided to retaliate by shooting his brother’s Xbox 53 times, officials in Australia said. 

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Holman, 24, was best friends with his 16-year-old brother until the relationship somehow went south. The teen urinated on Holman’s car on July 16 and uploaded a video of the event on Facebook.

Three days later, Holman took his brother’s Xbox and unloaded 53 bullets into it. He reportedly laid the destroyed Xbox and cartridges out on the family table for his brother to see, and uploaded the shooting video on Facebook.

Holman pleaded guilty to four charges in court on Friday.

The magistrate found Holman “of otherwise good character” and released him on a 12-month good behavior bond. He also fined Holman $500 and advised him to think about his bond with his brother.
