Man goes on phone-throwing rampage in mall

FARGO, N.D. – 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, said 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.
