Raging tenant armed with a sledgehammer destroys apartment after landlord refused to give back his $2,500 security deposit

A tenant was told by his soon-to-be-former Landlord that he would not receive his security deposit back upon move out. That deposit was $2,500.

He broke mirrors, bathroom stalls, and walls as he explained his actions in French to a friend that taped the whole event.
