Tempers flare in line for latest Air Jordan shoes

Posted: Updated:

Dallas police were called to the Southwest Center Mall early Friday for reports of a fight in the line for the latest Air Jordans.

Officials said people started lining up overnight outside the mall in southern Dallas. A shoe store there planned to hand out tickets for the Gamma Blue Jordan 11 shoes, which are scheduled to be released on Saturday.

At about 6 a.m. a group of people arrived and tried to cut to the front of the line. Tempers flared and police had to intervene, officials said.

There were no initial reports of arrests or injuries.

Police remained at the scene for crowd control as the store opened.

The Jordan 11 is reportedly one of the most popular Air Jordan models and the Gamma Blue color is a favorite among Nike fans. The shoes retail for about $185 and are being released just in time for Christmas.
