Brawls over Air Jordans

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The release of the latest Nike Air Jordan sneaker brought out throngs of crowds across the country and several brawls broke out, too.

Video making the rounds online taken at a shoe store in Stockton, California, shows various fist fights erupting, apparently over the Gamma Blue 11s.

Tempers wore thin after some shoppers waited hours for a chance to buy a pair. The sneakers went on sale on Friday night.

Another fight reportedly broke out outside a Foot Locker on E. 151st St. in the Bronx between a group of women.

"It was two lines. It was kids and adults. The adults were a little crazy," said Miyah Rogers, 11, of Queens who purchased her Air Jordans in Harlem.

She was given a ticket to come back at a later date to purchase the in-demand sneakers.

Rogers' mother, Glenda Irby, said she paid $185 for the new kicks.

"I tried them on. They're very comfortable," said the retail manager.

The Jordan 11s are the most popular line of Jordans.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
