    Is "break" enough to clearly state someone casts and breaks things?

    Hi,
    Is the word "break" enough to express clearly someone casts / hurls hard things (no matter whether the objects he/she casts splits into parts) when getting drunk or being angry?
    Any other better way to say?
    Thanks!

    It's more natural to say that he throws things about.

    Smash is also a good alternative if someone is breaking things when angry. The drunk angry man was smashing things in the room.
