Guy Gets Mad at iPhone, Threatens To Shoot It. With a Real Gun.
OK, we know the iPhone, as wonderful as it is, can be a troublesome device. It can freeze, and the apps can get all weird, and then you can’t play Zynga Poker or whatever it is you like to do with it.
But going into an Apple Store, asking for the phone to be fixed, then revealing a gun and threatening to shoot the device is probably not the best way to vent your frustration. One Donald Goodrich from Westwood learned that the hard way, as he was arrested and charged with aggravated menacing and causing fear of harm to an Apple employee.
Apparently, Donald brought his iPhone to the Apple store, told the Apple employee he was “So mad, I could pop a 9mm at it,” and then actually revealed a real 9mm handgun. The Apple employee she’d get his phone fixed, and then told her manager who called the police. To his credit, Donald did have a concealed weapon permit, but, as he soon discovered, it doesn’t cover threatening to shoot gadgets at a store full of people.
