  • Customer Threatens To Pop a Cap In His iPhone At Apple Store


    A man who threatened to "pop a 9mm (Parabellum round) in" his iPhone at an Apple Store in Ohio was removed from the store by police, and charged with misdemeanor offense. No one was injured in the incident.

    Donald Goodrich, 38, brought his iPhone to the Kenwood Towne Center Apple Store in Cincinnati, Ohio on Thursday. The phone was exhibiting some unspecified error that was causing Goodrich enormous frustration. To illustrate his point, Goodrich lifted his shirt and revealed a handgun, which he is legally entitled to carry under his Ohio state concealed weapons permit. Goodrich was quoted as saying Im so mad, I could pop a 9mm at his iPhone, and further warning Ill do it right now! Look! as he showed the store employee his gun. The employee, thinking fast, led Goodrich over to some poor Genius Bar tech, who delayed him somehow as the police were called.

    Upon arrival, the police arrested Goodrich for "aggravated menacing" of the first employee, and also cited him for not immediately informing the police he was carrying a weapon, which is a condition of the concealed weapons permit.

    I hope that Genius Bar tech gets a raise.

      Yes, seacoast NH
      a bit off thread but in response to some who think carrying a firearm is "cowboyish" it is still is a right. I am a vegan could not hurt a fly unprovoked but I have a small farm and always coming home to some type of critter (bear, coyote,fox) looking for a free meal and acouple of rounds fired into a stump scurrys the critter on their way. Plus hopefully the thought of a surprise might do the same for keeping away unwanted 2 legged critters.

      Some people are just too stupid to be allowed to have a gun. I guess this story just confirms it. I found the picture hilarious, "Give me your iPhone or the pussy cat will get it?"

      Whoever said they carry openly in FL. Good luck. Unless you are on your own property, Florida is NOT an open carry state and therefore you will be charged with an offense if caught. If you have a CCW, you can lose it for carrying openly in Florida as a CCW permit holder you ARE required to conceal your weapon.

After I removed the broken digi, he stopped me and handed me the phone, it was his boss. He told me he wasn't paying $125 for the repair because he was told, by his secretary, it was $100 previously in the week. I explained to him that when his secretary had called, she asked for the price of a 3G repair and not the 3GS and that if she had informed us it was a 3GS she would have been told it was $125. He flipped out and said he can afford to pay it but refuses based on "principal". I told him again, this is the price and I cannot do it for any less. He said stop the repair now and give him the phone back. I explained that the phone was already mid repair and just needed the replacement digitizer at this point. He still told me to stop and give his driver the phone back. I then told him I would only be charging him $25 for the labor on removing the broken glass (I figured it was fair). He began screaming louder that if I even try to charge him for anything he will drive down here and deal with me himself. I said, Come on down. He arrived, grabbed his phone, and smashed the phone on the wall and then threw it into the street and said, "See! I told you this phone doesn't mean sh!t to me and I can afford to buy another one, but I wont pay you sh!t." I just laughed and said, well now you need to pay $699 to replace it

      Point is, people are nuts...What he didn't realize is that my neighbor is a cop and was standing behind him the whole time. He gave me the $25 and got a ticket for littering!

      I have a CCW as well, and it is perfectly legal to have it visible. I carry mine on my hip some times in plain sight. The laws here in FL are not strict actually, you just cannot carry in certain places. I dont know who gave you that information but you have been misinformed...
      Sorry. I was originally referring to when you stated the above before you mentioned it was only in your office or on your own property...

      Okay, lets stop the gun opinion thing here. Normally most people who do have a CCW permit are law abiding citizens and responsible adults who have passed an extensive state and federal backround check. There are a few who do slip through the cracks though. Lets not have those bad ones give a bad name to all CCW permit holders across the states. A lot of people are divided on the issue of gun rights and gun ownership also. This is a forum about Apple and iPhones. Lets not get off topic folks..

      In the middle of all the problems with gun control this doesnt look good for the NRA.

      People that abuse the power to carry a gun simply need to have it removed.

      But believe it not there are many responsable people out there you just dont hear about them.

      Completely agree with you. Anyone who brandishes a weapon in a threatening matter should immediately go to jail and lose all CCW privileges.

      I'm so glad I live in a country where we don't have people carrying guns.
