Shoe Riot at Southcenter Tukwila


SEATTLE (AP) — The release of Nike’s new Air Jordan basketball shoes caused a frenzy at shoe stores early Friday, with police using pepper spray on a group of rowdy customers near Seattle.
A group of about 20 people were sprayed after getting into fights at the Westfield Southcenter mall in suburban Seattle, Tukwila Officer Mike Murphy said.
The crowd started gathering around midnight at four stores in the mall and had grown to more than 1,000 by 4 a.m., when the stores opened, Murphy said. Fans of the Air Jordan Retro 11 were waiting in line to pay nearly $200 for the black and white Jordans scheduled to go on sale December 23.
