Extreme Shopping: Black Friday Wal-Mart Shopper Pepper Sprays Crowd To Keep Away From XBox Deal

November 28, 2011


Seen here looking like my worst nightmare, a rowdy crowd gathers outside a Wal-Mart on Black Friday, ready and willing to trample a fellow bargain hunter to death over $5 Blu-Rays. Enter an undisclosed lady who pepper-sprayed a group of shoppers to get a leg-up on an XBox deal. Your children: you're teaching them right.

The Los Angeles Police Department is beginning to interview 20 victims who were allegedly pepper sprayed by a "competitive shopper" trying to scoop up a video game console during a Black Friday sale at a Porter Ranch Wal-Mart store.

The woman, who has not been identified, turned herself in to police Friday night after video of the incident was broadcast. She later was released while police continue to investigate.

I don't even know/am too lazy to look up what Wal-Mart's Black Friday Xbox deal was, but I seriously doubt it was worth getting pepper-sprayed/going to jail over. That said, I'd let you mace me in the face AND taze my balls simultaneously for 50% off LEGO sets.
