A San Diego man beat the snot out of a guy who stole his iPhone. According to reports the phone was not a newer iPhone, but nonetheless the man felt that things like this get by to often and he took matters into his own hands. Kenneth Schmidgall tracked the thief down, who coincidentally had outstanding warrants, using an app called Find My iPhone and a little detective work to go along with it. Kenneth recovered his iPhone with the assistance of his friend, free lance photographer Greg Torkelson, and laid the smack down on the suspected thief that put the icing on the cake.

SAN DIEGO – A dramatic video showing a fight over an iPhone is starting to go viral.

It all started on Dec. 30, when Kenneth Schmidgall lost his iPhone. He said he kept calling it, but no one would answer. His friend Greg Torkelson wanted to help.

“We just wanted the phone back,” Torkelson said. “Some of it was a little bit of adrenaline… you know, it was the chase of trying to get the guy.” –
