Black Friday Mayhem Round Up
According to the experts, this year’s Black Friday deals were only so-so. That didn’t keep people from going completely bonkers in a few places. Here are some of the highlights.
In Pearl, Mississippi – A Hog-In-Heat Stink Bomb! Never heard of these before. At a Walmart someone dropped a “Hog-In-Heat” stink bomb to try to get other people to leave the store. Apparently it smells like hog pee.
There’s no word on how many people it drove out of the store. The local ABC station tweeted a photo of an unfortunate Walmart employee having to clean up the remains. (Twitter)
In Moultrie, Georgia – A Walmart Riot Over Cell Phones. It wouldn’t be Black Friday without at least one horrifying riot. A video surfaced from a Walmart in where people pushed, elbowed, and fought over a crate of cell phones. (Time)
In Springfield, Massachusetts – Child Abandonment. The signature moment of this year’s Black Friday happened . 34-year-old Anthony Perry went to K-Mart for their midnight deals, and took his girlfriend’s two-year-old son.
But when he ran into the store to get a 51-inch TV, he forgot the kid in the car. Then, after he bought his TV, he thought he’d lost the kid in the store, he panicked, and called a friend to pick him and his TV up.
The police found the boy in the parking lot at about 1:30 A.M. Fortunately, the kid was okay. Anthony is going to be facing reckless endangerment charges. (Yahoo)
In San Antonio, Texas – A Guy Pulls a Gun on Someone Who Cut in Line. There’s nothing people take more seriously on Black Friday than other people showing up late and trying to cut in line. That happened on Thursday night .
Apparently, a man tried to jump the line, so another person in line, 33-year-old Jose Alonzo Salame, pulled a gun on him. The line jumper took cover behind a refrigerator, and fortunately no shots were fired.
Jose had a carry permit and won’t face charges. (San Antonio Express-News)
In Covington, Washington – Run Over in a Walmart Parking Lot. Tons of people walking through parking lots on Black Friday, and tons of drivers fighting for spots is a bad combo. Especially when one of those drivers is drunk.
On Thursday night a 71-year-old man drove drunk to Walmart and ran over a man and a woman in the parking lot. They were both rushed to the hospital in serious condition. The driver was arrested. (Huffington Post)
