Top 10 Black Friday Mishaps
Ugh – well Black Friday has come and gone, and all that’s left are a few bumps and bruises, and for those, look no further than Walmart! Walmart opened early with huge deals, and people were ready to pounce — maybe a little too much. At least two dozen shoppers were injured and several were arrested… All to save a few bucks? Not me thanks!
Here’s the Top 10 List:
1) Los Angeles: 20 customers (including kids) suffered injuries after being pepper sprayed by a fellow shopper. Police say she used the spray to get a better shot at a discounted Xbox.
2) San Landro, CA: A shopper was shot after fighting two armed men who were out to steal his purchases.
3) Upstate New York: Two women were arrested after fist fighting in the electronics department.
4) Kinston, NC: Cellphones marked from $200 to $35 caused fists to fly between customers — security had to use pepper spray to regain order.
5) Right here in west Michigan – Muskegon: A teen was treated for injuries after being trampled repeatedly by customers rushing to the electronics department.
6) Phoenix, AZ: A grandfather who put a video game in his waistband to lift his grandson above a rowdy crowd for safety was thrown to the ground by police.
7, 8, 9, 10) Walmart stores in Woodland Park, CO, Neosho, MO, and Bentonville, Ark, all received bomb threats.
