Ninja crashes car into Greensboro Apple Store

Ninja crashes car into Apple Store

We kid you not -- a man described by security as wearing a white ninja suit crashed his car through the Greensboro Apple Store before fleeing on foot.

Greensboro police received a call around 4:43 a.m. after a dark gray or blue Honda crashed into the store. According to police, the man crashed into the store in a robbery attempt.

The store will remain closed today, of course, while they see to damages. (And perhaps look into hiring some samurai to increase security?)

I'll bet that Steve Jobs fought him off using a force choke hold...all the way from California. Do not underestimate the power of The Force, or Steve Jobs.

Shiv says:

And by force... you mean the reality distortion field?
Btw, TiPB has a TERRIBLE comment system. Hop on the bandwagon and use Discus or Intense Debate.

Mary Beth Lowell says:

stop_takesometimetothink says:

No doubt one of the Fandroids that post on Engadget. I've always wondered what they were like in real life. Now we know

tony says:

Nope, it was a robbery attempt. why on earth would one of us "fandroids" break into an apple store?

Cornerstar31 says:

Because they want the real thing

stop_takesometimetothink says:

Why so serious? Well you're here aren't you?

Tracey says:

You KNOW this was an inside job, a false flag operation to bring more attention to Monday's event.

Bluecanary says:

Well.. You know what they say about asian drivers..

OmariJames says:

meinvein says:

He missed the whole point of being a ninja, going unnoticed. Someone needs some ninja tutoring!

Rick says:

I would not have fled. I would have stayed on scene and calmly explained that I was a ninja in training and that I was being chased by other ninjas. If they were like, "What ninjas?". I'd respond, "Hello... they're F***ing Ninjas!"
Also, I agree with the comment about switching to intense debate. It's a much better comment system.

Savvy Traveler says:

This is bullsh*t. Ninjas don't drive Honda Accords. They drive Kias.

Jayyy says:

It's there app for that??????

Analog Spirit says:

(sigh/shaking my head) It figures... LOL

Why the hell not a hysterical act at an unbelievable price

Jonathan Seals says:

Kenji O. says:

This is why it's hard to be a ninja in America; there a handful of evil ninjas giving us a bad name.

talkin73 says:

That is kinda uncool how one bad ninja can spoil it for all the rest of you guys :-( Hopefully our big giant melting pot of a country will see this callous act for what it is... the act of one misguided ninja, and not just all future ninjas they encounter based simply on this ninjas misbehavior. For the curious at heart, I am reasonably confident that I've typed the word "ninja" more times in this single comment than in all previous years of my life combined. Out.

Seth says:

Right around the corner from me & I heard it here first. Thanks TiPB.

TylerVansantTV3 says:

You know he was a ninja because he did not let himself to be photographed by the apple store cameras or any other cameras close by.
