Oklahoma City police say 23-year-old Jerome Whyte was with a friend inside an apartment when they started arguing over which science-fiction series is better. The friend eventually turned and walked away, which is when Whyte jumped him and tackled him to the floor. Whyte then wrapped his arms around his friend’s neck and tried to choke him.
