The bad press continues for those simply waiting in line for a chance to get their hands on the Legend Blue 11s. Only days after chaos in Houston, nearly 300 people lined up at Toledo, Ohio’s Franklin Park Mall around 3:30am for a Finish Line raffle offering. We all know the story next. The crowd became unruly, pushing and shoving ensued, and the minimal security force decided it was a good idea to launch a few pepper spray canisters into the crowd to calm everybody down. It’s worth noting that no serious injuries occurred, no arrests were made, and people were able to resume waiting for the tickets after the situation simmered down. The mall will be more prepared on Saturday, when raffle winners return to claim their prize. Watch ABC’s coverage of the Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue madness after the break and let us know if you’ve had any problems trying to grab your raffle tickets for this year’s Air Jordan 11 retro offering in the comments section.
