    Some people...

    are just plain crazy

    Man angry at Verizon hurls phones

    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.

    In other news Verizon sucks.......

    I could imagine their customers wanting to throw phones at them, but he shouldn't have taken it own on the employees at the store. He shoulda waited for the Verizon CEO to get in his limo.

    That reminds me, does anyone have a spare copy of windows? Bill Gates and I have an ummm "meeting"
