2011 May 10 Sanlitun Apple Store Violence Resolved
The Apple drama seems to be settling down for now, blogged by Agenda's Adeline Wang:
According to Sina Technology Times, a fight that broke out at the Sanlitun Apple Store around 3pm on May 7 has been settled. The violence occurred as Apple fans gathered excitedly in a long queue outside the store to wait for the iPad 2 launch.
As a result, Apple Store employees were forced to manage a chaotic crowd of eager customers all day, many of whom included product scalpers, which unfortunately culminated into an assistant getting into a fight with a young Chinese male customer. Chaoyang police are not pursuing charges against the offending Apple Store employee, but have charged him RMB 20,000 to cover the victim’s hospital fees.
