Ga. police: 4 arrested in mad dash for Air Jordans

At least four people were arrested in a mad dash by customers hoping to purchase a pair of the new Nike Air Jordan basketball shoes at a suburban Atlanta shopping mall.

DeKalb County police tell Fox 5 Atlanta (http://bit.ly/vOpwA0) that up to 20 squad cars responded to a mall in Lithonia early Friday. They said a large crowd broke down a door to get inside before a store opened.

Police say they escorted most of the people back outside, but took four into custody.

Officers said they had to break a car window to get two toddlers out after a woman went in after the shoes. They said she was taken into custody when she returned to the car.

Names of the suspects were not immediately released.
