This is the shocking moment when an angry customer storms down the aisle of a Tesco supermarket and tosses items on the floor in front of horrified staff after being told to wear a mask.
The footage shows the man pulling items off the shelves and slamming them on the floor in a store on Uxbridge Road in Ealing, west London, on September 22nd.
The angry customer continues to romp down the confectionery aisle, littering the floor with chips, chocolate and packets of popcorn while worried employees watch.
The customer is believed to have started their tirade in-store after being asked by staff to wear a mask or leave the grocery store, The Sun reported.
The angry customer was filmed as he stormed the aisle of a Tesco store on Uxbridge Road in Ealing in front of horrified buyers on September 22nd and threw objects on the floor
During the clip, the man who appears to be on the phone pulls items off the shelves and throws them on the floor.
Piles of stocks lay in piles at his feet as he reached up to the top shelf to pull out more products.
A guard in protective clothing stands at the door and watches in horror as the buyer continues to empty the shelves.
As the buyer sends more items to the floor, the employee steps back and leaves the store to look around.
The customer then tosses some of the food from under his feet and screams inaudibly as he tosses the aisle further away.
Police said they were called to reports of anti-social behavior on the ground last month and arrested a man on suspicion of criminal harm.
A police spokesman told MailOnline: "The police were called to report anti-social behavior in a commercial building on Uxbridge Road in Ealing around 9:00 pm on September 22nd.
The officers arrested a man on suspicion of criminal harm. He was also arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm in connection with an alleged assault (minor injury) on an employee of the store.
"Soren Birch of Greenford was subsequently released on condition that he appeared in the Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on November 25 to bring charges of intent to destroy, damage, and beat property."
A Tesco spokesman said: "We are grateful to the police for their assistance following a disruption to our Tesco Express store on Uxbridge Road a few weeks ago."
The video has since been viewed more than 100,000 times on Twitter and Facebook, which has created confusion among social media users.

Last month, the Prime Minister announced that fines for lack of face covering would rise to £ 200 and become mandatory for bar staff, shop workers, waiters and taxi drivers.
The scenes come after Ealing became London's new Covid-19 hotspot. Government data shows the West London borough diagnosed 144.5 cases per 100,000 residents in the week ending October 9, beating Richmond-upon-Thames (137.9).
Ealing's 7-day moving average rose from 132.5 yesterday to 144.5 cases per day.
The numbers came as Mayor Sadiq Khan said he "expected" an announcement from ministers later today to confirm that London will move to Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions "shortly". MEPs were told this morning that it could be midnight on Friday.
In the transition from “medium” to “high”, the nine million people in the capital would be banned from mixing with other households indoors, including in pubs and restaurants.
