An Australian Twitch streamer has been arrested by police after appearing to hit and verbally abuse his partner during a Fortnite livestream.
A video of the incident was uploaded to YouTube on Sunday.
The streamer, who plays under the name MrDeadMoth, can be seen arguing with his wife who is off-camera.
She appears to be throwing things at him and asking him to stop playing the game.
He repeatedly tells her he'll "be out soon", and asks her to "stop" and to "f**k off".
She then throws a cardboard box at him.
He gets up from the chair, storms off screen and a slap can be heard, followed by a woman screaming and a child crying.

He tells her "How many times do I have to tell you?"
His wife can then clearly be heard calling him a "woman basher".
"You hear that? All you people there, he just hit me in the face," she says, addressing those watching the livestream via streaming site Twitch.
She can then be heard telling him to say 'sorry', at which point he gets up again, and the woman can be heard crying as he screams at her to go away, and a child begins to cry in the background.
"I hope all of you people know that I'm pregnant and he just bashed me," she can be heard saying.
He can also be heard hurling verbal abuse at the woman, saying "f**k off you dog. You don't pay the f**king bills".
Analytics from the website Social Blade showed that almost all of his 5000 subscribers disappeared following the incident. He has also deleted his Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch accounts.
New South Wales police have charged him with common assault, and he is due to appear in Camden local court on 13th December.
