A woman was taken into police custody after destroying liquor bottles at a supermarket in Britain on Wednesday and the entire incident was caught on video. 

The incident took place at a supermarket located in  Stevenage, England, the New York Post reported. The unidentified woman is accused of shattering 500 alcoholic bottles at the establishment.

A video clip of the incident shows a woman smashing the bottles without interruption and an aisle floor almost completely covered in broken bottles. According to the NY Post, the woman caused over $100,000 in damages. 

"She didn't say a word the whole time and had a very vacant look in her face," an eyewitness told The Sun.

Daily Mail reported that police responded to the scene after receiving a call on Wednesday. The woman was detained after being transported to a hospital to treat wounds on her hands, according to the report.

A similar incident occurred at another supermarket in Surrey, England in September. A woman smashed wine bottles on the floor after refusing to comply with the store's Covid-19 one-way system protocol.
