The best part of waking up … is throwing the guy who woke you into a fish tank.

Justin Michael Byars, 21, of Newport News, Va., has been charged with one count of malicious wounding after allegedly assaulting the man who disturbed him from his sleep, the Daily Press reports.

The 22-year-old victim, whose name has not been released, told Newport News police that Byars barged into the apartment where he was staying at around noon on Saturday. Once there, the victim says, Byars punched him in the head and threw him into a glass aquarium, according to Fox 43.

When questioned, Byars allegedly told authorities that the victim had woken him up earlier that morning, WTKR reports.

The victim suffered lacerations to his hand and arm and was treated at a local hospital before calling police.
