Unhappy Frenchman went on iPhone smashing spree in Apple Store using a petanque ball

An apparently disgruntled Frenchman was arrested on Thursday after he marched into an Apple Store and smashed up several iPhones using a petanque ball.

The unnamed man was captured on camera using the solid metal ball to crush the smartphones and at least one laptop. Dressed in dark glasses and one white glove, the vandal struck in the Toison d'Or shopping centre in Dijon.

He was eventually arrested after trying to flee from security guards. The man had declared that Apple "violates customer rights" and claimed he has been refused a refund. He then methodically made his way round a display of iPhones and smashed them.

The unhappy man then calmly strolled towards the shop's exit, where a member of the shopping centre's security staff was waiting to apprehend him. Apple have refused to comment on the matter, but confirmed they are working with the French authorities.
