Woman tasered at US mall for exceeding 'iPhone purchase' limit!
A woman was tasered at a US mall in what appears to be a misunderstanding of Apple's limit on iPhone purchases.
Xiaojie Li bought two iPhones at an Apple Store in Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, USA and wanted to buy two more. Li was denied in the store because she reached the limit on iPhone purchases at that particular store, so she ordered them online for an in-store pick up.
When Li attempted to pick up her phones, a manager told her to leave the Apple Store, but Li says she did not understand. Police then tried to escort her from the store, but Li reportedly refused to go and resisted arrest, CBS News reports.
According to the report, police say they gave her 10 minutes to leave and then used a stun gun, or taser, to subdue her.
"They threw her on the ground, they threw her around, they bruised her all over the place, they handcuffed her way too hard," Li's fiance John Hugo said.
Police maintain they were not using excessive force because they gave her 10 minutes to comply with their requests, the report said.
Raw video of the incident was posted on YouTube, which shows the sound of Li screaming could be heard throughout the mall. She has now hired a lawyer to fight charges against her, the report added.
Apple has not commented on the case.
