A Chinese woman living in Massachusetts was tased repeatedly by police at a mall after store owners called police when she attempted to buy more than one iPhone as gifts for her family.
WMUR news reports that 44-year-old Xiaojie Li was visiting the mall in Nashua, New Hampshire, last week to buy christmas presents, but ran into trouble at the Apple store.
Li, who cannot speak English very well, was confused when workers refused to allow her to buy more than two iPhones. According to her daughter, Li recorded video of other customers buying multiple iPhones, prompting Apple staff to ask her to leave.
According to Nashua police, the store notified them of the incident and requested a no-trespass order.
When Li returned to the store Tuesday and attempted once more to buy several iPhones, police were called to the scene
Her daughter told WMUR, “My mom says she doesn’t know why they called the police because she doesn’t understand what they are talking about.”
“The manager of Apple store came and told her something but she doesn’t understand,” the daughter added.
Police claim she then resisted arrest, forcing them to use a taser on her. Onlookers captured the incident on a camera phone. Li can be seen writing on the ground as the cracking electricity of the taser causes her to scream.
