There's a bit of consolation today for the man who lost his pinky finger over an iPad - a suspect has been arrested in the violent theft case.

59-year-old Bill Jordan says he's "doing as well as I can for a man with nine fingers." Last week, Jordan was just minding his own business when he walked out of an Apple Store with his new iPad, when he was jumped by an assailant who ripped the Apple Store bag out of his hand with such force that part of his pinky finger was torn off.

Jordan talked to local newspaper The Denver Post. "It was very painful ... It kind of hit me like a lightning bolt," he said, adding that his permanent mutilation is "kind of hard to come to terms with."

It wasn't too difficult to figure out who the thief was. His picture was caught in broad daylight on surveillance cameras, and police were able to get the serial number of the stolen iPad.

Police worked around the clock to find Brandon Darnell, the man identified on the video. He was arrested early this morning at 1:14 AM at a traffic stop.

It's little solace for the man who can never get his finger back, and the inevitable civil lawsuit against an obviously poor criminal will be less than fruitful.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
