A 51-year-old businesswoman who created a ruckus in the Apple Store in Kwun Tong last year was sentenced to one year’s probation on Friday.

According to Oriental Daily, the woman visited the Apple Store in the apm shopping center in June last year to ask a staff member to help her install the LeaveHomeSafe app, Hong Kong’s Covid social tracing app.

The Chinese-language paper said the woman claimed a staff member there had a poor attitude. 

She then made a scene in the store, throwing 16 products, including iPhones and MacBooks, worth HK$148,584 (US$18,929) to the ground.

She also hit the staff member there twice in the head with an iPhone 12 mini.

The staff member had to go to a hospital to receive treatment.

The woman earlier pleaded guilty to criminal damage and common assault. 

She was sentenced to one year of probation and ordered to pay HK$1,000 in court fees by the Kwun Tong Magistrates’ Courts.
