THIS is the moment a woman smashed hundreds of bottles of booze and lobbed gin at customers in a rampage at Aldi.
She remained silent as she dragged thousands of pounds worth of wine, beer and spirits from the budget supermarket’s shelves in Hertfordshire on Wednesday afternoon.
One shopper queuing to pay for his goods told her to “calm down” – prompting her to launch a bottle of gin at his leg.
Video of the shocking five-minute riot shows the woman, wearing a hoodie, backpack and mustard tracksuit bottoms, slip on bottles and slash her right hand.
She then raised it in the air and carried on tearing the bottles down with her left hand.
A security guard from a nearby store detained her by “bear-hugging” her before she was arrested by cops around 2.30pm.
Telly presenter Lee Clark, 50, watched the drama unfold in Stevenage, Herts, and said: “It was extraordinary – I’ve never seen anything like that before in my life.
“She didn’t say a word the whole time and had a very vacant look in her face.
“A man told her to calm down so she threw a bottle of gin which hit him in the leg.
“She must have smashed well over 500 bottles.
“It was shocking and started getting incredibly dangerous.”
Lee said there were around 50 shoppers in the store at the time, including a mum with a young child.
