A still from the Facebook video which shows a man smashing bottles in Tescos in West Street this afternoon.
Gardaí are investigating an incident that occurred this afternoon at the Tesco store in West Street, Drogheda during which a man began smashing bottles of wine and spirits by throwing them on the floor.
It is not known at this stage what provoked the outburst but the man was not wearing a mask and it is though that he became upset when asked to do so.
Terrified shoppers loooked on as the man picked bottle after the bottle from the drinks section and smahed them to the floor.
A spokesperson for Tesco’s said: “We confirm there was an incident in our Drogheda West Street store on Wednesday, 21st October.

“The store is operating as normal following the incident. An investigation by An Garda Síochána is now underway and we apologise to any customers who were in the store when this happened.”
A video of the incident has since gone viral on Facebook. We’re not uploading the video because it is patently obvious that the man is not well.
