HA-HA! Would-be iPad thief lost finger
A man in Denver lost his pinky finger as a result of trying to steal an iPad.
Police arrested Brandon Smith for second-degree assault and robbery of Bill Jordan.
Jordan had just purchased an iPad when the suspect followed him down a staircase to the parking garage and accosted him, yanking so hard at the iPad that he stripped some of the skin to the bone on his little finger.
Jordan's finger was so badly damaged it required amputation. (info from UPI)
