A Massachusetts man is accused by prosecutors of pulling a gun on Christmas morning and threatening members of his family in an argument over which television show to watch.

“Corey Hodgdon was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing at his arraignment Tuesday on charges that include assault and battery with a dangerous weapon,” the AP reports.

Hodgdon reportedly became upset over the show the family was watching on TV. The incident took place in Worcester, Mass.

“Police say some family members locked themselves in a bathroom. They were able to escape the home when Hodgdon went into the basement. Officers arrived at the scene, entered the home and arrested Hodgdon,” the AP reports. “Hodgdon’s attorney requested her client undergo a mental health evaluation, which the judge granted.”
