SEATTLE (AP) ' Police used pepper spray to break up fights among pushing and shoving customers waiting outside a Seattle-area mall to buy the first Nike retro Air Jordan basketball shoes that went on sale early Friday.
Tukwila Officer Mike Murphy says about 20 people were sprayed. One man was arrested for assault after police say he pushed an officer.
Murphy says more than 1,000 people lined up to buy shoes at 4 a.m. at four stores in the mall.
Across the country, at least four people were arrested at a suburban Atlanta mall after a crowd of customers broke down a door before a store selling the Air Jordans opened.
