NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A brawl among customers lining up to buy an iPhone at an Apple store in New Haven has led to three summonses and one customer who was put in police lockup.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/ZbJj97 ) that police say the fight Monday involved more than a dozen people. Customers were fighting over places in line.

Officer David Hartman said people from New York try to buy as many phones as allowed by the stores.

The three people cited were issued summonses on charges of disorderly conduct, interfering with police and breach of peace.

The iPhone 6 went on sale Friday.

Apple says it sold more than 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models, a record for a new model, in the three days after the phones went on sale.
