An 11-year-old boy from Pennsylvania has been charged after urinating on $36,000 worth of Apple MacBook computers, owned by his school.
Police were called to Upper Allen Elementary School in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania after teachers discovered that the boy had relieved himself on around 30 laptops.
The expensive technology, which had been sitting unattended on a cart in a school hallway, was ‘damaged beyond repair’, police said.
The student is facing charges of institutional vandalism and criminal mischief.
His case has been passed to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.
‘The cart and computers were damaged beyond repair resulting in the loss of over $36,000,’ police said.
Apple refuses to fix MacBooks that have been urinated on, considering them an occupational health and safety hazard to its repair staff.
The technology giant also considers cigarette smoke a hazard to its workers.
