A top LG Electronics Inc. executive has been indicted by Seoul
prosecutors for allegedly vandalizing several high-end washing
machines manufactured by rival Samsung Electronics Co.
An LG Electronics spokeswoman said Sunday that Jo Seong-jin, head
of the company’s home-appliance division, has been indicted on
charges of deliberately damaging four Samsung “Crystal Blue”
washing machines ahead of a trade show in Germany last September.
Mr. Jo has also been charged with defamation and obstruction of
business, she said.
Two other company executives have been indicted on similar charges
over the same incident, the spokeswoman said.
I like to imagine Phil Schiller and Eddy Cue dropping a flaming bag of dog shit on Larry Page’s porch and ringing the doorbell.
