It would appear hell hath no fury like a guy trying to track down his stolen iPhone. When Kenneth Schmidgall’s iPhone went missing while attending a reggae concert in his hometown of San Diego, he went on an investigation that would make even Sherlock Holmes proud. Using the Find My iPhone app he tracked down his phone to a guy riding his bicycle down near Torrey Pines State Beach.
After confronting the alleged thief, things turned violent when the thief hit Schmidgall with a rock. A fight ensued and Schmidgall managed to get the guy on the sand and hold him there. During the ruckus, Schmidgall’s roommate pepper sprayed the guy who they believed may have been on drugs “because he kept going even after he was sprayed.” A police officer eventually took the alleged thief into custody and Schmidgall was reunited with his phone.
Despite having to fight for the phone, Schmidgall says it was worth it. He said, “I don’t think everyone should get in a fight for their phone, but I want people to know that if it’s taken, there’s something they can do to get it back.” (Huffington Post)
