Chicago coppers
picked up a bloke after he symbolically chucked a brick through the window of the  the city's Magnificent Mile Apple Store on Tuesday night.

It seemed that that bloke, who had a few, took offence at one of the "giant iPhone" displays. The irony of hurling a brick at a bricked product was obviously not lost on him.
