Shoppers wanting to get their hands on a pair of the new Nike Air Jordans on Friday did some serious damage at malls across the United States.
In Indianapolis sneaker freaks broke the door to the Lafayette Square Mall and jumped over people on the floor, including a small child, to get to the $180 XI Concords. According to a a man in North Carolina, the same thing happened there as well. He explained:
"People started getting restless, so they cracked open the doors and next thing you know people started getting trampled and bum-rushed — the doors fell on some girls' heads and … it was horrible, it was real bad."
A store in Richmond, California ended up canceling the sale after gunfire went off outside the mall. Luckily, no one was hurt and the 24 year old gunman was hauled off the jail.
One of the saddest reports came from Atlanta, where police had to break the windows to a car after a woman left her two kids inside so she could buy the shoes. She was promptly arrested once she returned to her car.
Wow. And all of this for a pair of shoes!? Despicable!
