Copy-Scuffle breaks out in Madison crowd waiting for new sneaker

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Madison police say a scuffle broke out in a crowd waiting for a new sneaker outside a sports store at West Towne Mall.

An estimated 60 people were outside Finish Line footwear Saturday at 9:50 a.m. waiting for the shop to open for the release of a new line of Air Jordan sneakers.

Mall security told police the crowd gathered outside the storefront was pushing and shoving, raising safety concerns.

WISC-TV (http://bit.ly/1oYn6Yd ) reports the store had only 10 pairs of the new shoe, which police said "which did not sit well with the crowd."
