A man in western Sweden was arrested on a charge of vandalism after urinating on fruit worth 700 kronor (£70, $110) in a Gothenburg supermarket.
The incident occurred in a branch of Hemköp in the city when the man peed into the fruit and veg section of the store. Police were called after astonished onlookers reported that the man had emptied his bladder over a selection of apples and oranges.
"It's the first time I've ever heard of such an incident," Victor Prästbacka of the Gothenburg police said. He added; "Apparently the fruit was worth 700 kronor which has now gone down the drain."
When police arrived on the scene they reported that the man was aggressive and had to be held down by guards. It is understood that the man was intoxicated and was later taken to the police station. The man was arrested on the spot and subsequently charged with vandalism.
