    DENVER, April 24 (UPI) -- Police in Denver said Saturday they have arrested a suspect in the theft of an iPad in which the victim lost his pinky finger.
    Police said they arrested Brandon Darnell Smith, 20, at 1:14 a.m. MDT during a traffic stop. Smith was being held for investigation of second-degree assault and robbery in the April 15 robbery of Bill Jordan, 59, The Denver Post reported.
    Jordan said he had just purchased an iPad -- the newest product from Apple Inc. -- at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center April 15 when the suspect followed him down a staircase to the parking garage and accosted him, yanking so hard at the iPad he stripped some of the skin to the bone on his little finger.
    Jordan's finger was so badly damaged it required amputation.

    i have had a couple of the people look at me when walking out of a coffee shop after useing the unit ..i turn and give them ok stupid what are going to do look ..most times it enough to get them to leave me alone ..

    one guy was stupid enough to get close to the car last night when we stoped in a fast food joint down on hollywood blvd .it called 101 coffee shop .stop in and try it it great food when you in L.a area ...they have a dish called a cake or pie in a jar with a ice cream toppings it a great way to finish meal from there ...both me and dave had pick this person up on our radar for he kept walking by and looking at us at the table and stareing at the laptop and ipad items on the table..so we finish eating and i go pay the bill and my buddy goes to the bathroom .

    so i go and wait by the car for him and the guy came walking past me at the car goes down the street aways then turns back and walks back by ..he did this a couple of times trying to figure out if he was going to do something ..that when dave walks up behind him and told him to leave before he does something stupid that we both have to sign police reports for .. ..he just walked off and was giveing us both go to hell looks ..

    dave was asking this question..your think he was trying scope us out to rob .i tell down on the blvd anything goes i guess.., at times down in LA area i sit and wonder if they inport the stupid ones from other areas ..
