Man accused of attacking family for not supporting his ‘America’s Got Talent’ dreams

A West Virginia man is accused of attacking his brother and other family members at a home in Ohio after they said they were not going to support him entering "America's Got Talent," according to WFMJ-TV.

Gregory Rarey, 25, became irate and left the home in Warren, Ohio, near Youngstown, before he came back and started screaming, authorities said. Police said Rarey then punched his brother in the face.

Rarey's brother then put him in a choke hold, authorities said. Rarey tried to force his way out of the hold, biting his brother multiple times before he passed out, according to police.

Police said Rarey told officers he would kill his brother if he filed charges because that would automatically eliminate his chances of trying out for "America's Got Talent."

He was arrested and charged with domestic violence.
