Ohio police use pepper spray on crowd lined up for Air Jordans


#1

Police in Toledo, Ohio pepper sprayed to disperse about 300 people at that city’s Franklin Park Mall this morning.

Shoppers began arriving at the mall at 3:30 a.m. today to get tickets to purchase $200 Nike Air Jordan Retro 11 Legend Blues, which will go on sale this Saturday.

Police spokesman Sergeant Joe Heffernan said the pepper spray was used at about 5:45 a.m. after people knocked down barricades and several officers were knocked to the ground.

December sales of the latest Air Jordans, which are released in limited quantities, has perennially been a source of crowd-related problems at stores around the country.

I’m wondering why these sneakerheads are going crazy over this Air Jordan shoe to get pepper sprayed.

I just looked up the shoe and it looks ugly. I’d prefer getting the Mcfly replica Nike shoe than the Air Jordan.

I would not spend $200 for a pair of shoes. I can’t remember when I spendt that much in a year for shoes. :stuck_out_tongue: :smiley:
