A woman has gone on a rampage at a supermarket in the United Kingdom, breaking about 500 booze bottles and causing a heavy dent in the store owner's wallet.

The incident took place Wednesday afternoon at Aldi supermarket in Stevenage, Hertfordshire when a woman walking down the alcohol aisle started pulling out bottles from the shelves and dropping them on the floor.

Stunned shoppers captured the bizarre moment on camera. In the video, the woman is seen walking through the supermarket breaking bottles and leaving a long trail of alcohol and broken glass behind her.

"I've never seen anything like this," a shopper is heard saying off-camera.

At one point during the bottle-breaking spree, the woman, wearing a hoodie, backpack and khaki pants, slipped and fell down on the pool of alcohol and broken glass. She cut herself and began bleeding on her right hand. But she showed no signs of stopping and continued smashing the bottles with her left hand, the New York Post reported.

When a fellow shopper asked the woman to calm down, she allegedly flung a Gin bottle at the man.

The shocking incident unfolded when there were hundreds of shoppers including children inside the store.

The woman managed to break 500 bottles of alcohol, the New York Post reported. Her outburst finally came to an end when a security guard grabbed her and escorted her out of the supermarket.

Renowned TV anchor Lee Clark was in the store during the incident. Clark talked to the store's manager, who said that the woman caused around $130,000 in damages, Fox 6 News Milwaukee reported. The amount included the broken bottles, cost of new flooring and lost revenue resulting from the store's forced closure.

The woman's identity has not been disclosed. According to local reports, she was later taken to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for her injuries. She remains in police custody.
