What would you do for expensive glow-in-the-dark sneakers? If you live in Orlando Florida you may just riot.
On February 23, 2012 sneaker heads at the Florida Mall’s Foot Locker House Of Hoops store began fighting while waiting for the release of the coveted sneaker.
Hip Hop Wired reports “the fracas erupted to such a level that Florida police in riot gear and on horseback were called to the scene. According to the report, police began moving in around 9:45 p.m. as the crowd began acting up. From there, people fled the scene as police moved in to clear the property, reportedly numbering into the hundreds. Although authorities say none were harmed, two people were arrested for trespassing, apparently defiant about losing their place in line over the coveted kicks.”
