The incident occurred in a branch of Hemköp in the city when the man peeled off into the fruit and veg section of the store. Police were called after astonished onlookers reported that the man had emptied his bladder over a selection of apples and oranges.
"It's the first time I've ever heard of such an incident," Victor Prästbacka of the Gothenburg police told Aftonbladet.
He added; "Apparently the fruit was worth 700 kronor which has now gone down the drain."
When police arrived on the scene they reported that the man was aggressive and had to be held down by guards. It is understood that the man was intoxicated and was later taken to the police station.
"We will question him when he has calmed down," said the police spokesperson.
The man was arrested on the spot and subsequently charged with vandalism.
"We will contact the prosecutor and try to get a hearing as soon as possible," added Prästbacka.
Last year a man in eastern Sweden was arrested after urinating on pizzas in a pizzeria after being refused entrance to the restaurant for being drunk.
