    Man angry at Verizon hurls phones
    More than $2,000 in damage results

    FARGO, North Dakota (AP) -- A man who said he was fed up with his cellular phone service went to a Fargo mall and started hurling phones across a store, striking an employee and causing more than $2,000 in damage, authorities said.

    Jason Perala, 22, of Fargo, told The Forum newspaper that he planned only to yell at employees at Verizon Wireless.

    "Then I just lost it," he said. "I just started grabbing computers and phones and throwing them. I just destroyed the place. ... I kind of regret that I did it, but I hope my message got across."

    Police said Perala took off his shirt and put on safety glasses before throwing around computers, phones and other items.

    One employee was struck in the shoulder by a phone before he and other workers dashed into an office, locked the door and called police, Sgt. Kevin Volrath said. Other businesses in the West Acres mall lowered their steel security gates during Thursday's incident.

    Perala was arrested without incident and jailed on charges of felony criminal mischief and misdemeanor simple assault.

    verizon SUCKS, they took me to collections for over 1800.00

    but here is the irony, ive NEVER had an account with them ever!

    whats even more strange is WHY would they let someone run up a bill that large??

    total BS if ya ask me!
    if you haven't considered chapter 7 bankruptcy, maybe you should.
    eliminate your debt, keep the property you want, most people qualify.
    contrary to popular belief - no attorney is necessary!

    When you go to some of their stores, sometimes you'll wait an hour before getting helped. Very bad customer service.
