CUMMING, Ga. — A mother and her son were kicked out of a cellphone store after causing a scene with an employee, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

The employee said she opened the phone and saw the SIM card was broken. When she told the suspects, they began to raise their voices at her.

She said she tried to find a reasonable way to calm the customers down, but the man ended up throwing his phone toward her.

She was not hit by the phone, but demanded they leave the store.

The mother and son were still in the parking lot when officers arrived.

The man said the employee broke his SIM card and he demanded her to fix it.

He said they argued about it, and he threw his phone toward her.

The couple is now banned from the store.
