What the hell. In New Hampshire, police used a taser on a woman while trying to arrest her at a mall, in an altercation that apparently went down because she wanted to purchase more than two iPhones: Language barrier may be to blame for Nashua Taser incident.
Xiaojie Li was arrested for allegedly trespassing at the Apple Store at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua. She was trying to buy iPhones for relatives in China, but employees limited her to just two. However, Li claims that she saw other customers buying more than two phones.
Employees asked her to leave, and even requested a no-trespass order on her. When she returned to the store a few days later, they called the cops on her. And that's when the tasing began:
The family said Xiaojie wanted to buy several iPhones for family in China but on Friday was limited to buying two.According to her family, Li can't speak English well and didn't understand what was happening at the store, and definitely didn't understand why she was arrested. She is charged with two misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass and resisting arrest and is scheduled for a court appearance in January.
Xiaojie said she recorded video in the store of what looked like other customers buying more.
Nashua police confirm she was asked to leave and the store even requested a no-trespass order.
When Xiaojie returned Tuesday to buy more iPhones, police said she was asked to leave again.
"Then manager of Apple store came and told her something but she doesn't understand," Xiaojie's daughter said.
When Xiaojie didn't leave, police said she resisted arrested and they were forced to use a Taser.
