THIS is the astonishing moment a man starts vandalising a Tesco score in Co. Louth after supposedly getting upset at being asked to wear a face-mask.
In the footage, a man can be seen hurling dozens and dozens of spirit and wine bottles to the ground in the booze aisle of Tesco on West Street in Drogheda yesterday.
Once he realises he's being filmed, the man appears to throw the bottles down with more force.
Shocked on-lookers can only watch and flee for cover as the vandal sends glass and alcohol flying in all directions.
33-year-old Graham McCormack was arrested in connection to the incident, and appeared before Drogheda district court charged with causing criminal damage later that day.

According to the Daily Mail, Mr McCormack told the court he would not agree to a bail condition to stay away from all Tesco outlets in Ireland and to remain sober.
Tesco confirmed the incident in a statement.
"We confirm there was an incident in our Drogheda West Street store on Wednesday. The store is operating as normal following the incident," the statement read.
"An investigation by An Garda Síochána is now underway and we apologise to any customers who were in the store when this happened."
Martin Quinn, who reportedly took the original video, summed the situation up perfectly: "A very sad day watching all the whiskey and wine gone to waste."
Too right, Martin.
