TOLEDO, Ohio– Police have used pepper spray to disperse a crowd of people waiting in line for a shoe sale at an Ohio mall.

Multiple media reports say dozens of people were gathered before 6 a.m. Wednesday at Franklin Park Mall in Toledo to get tickets allowing them to buy the Nike Air Jordan shoe later this week.

Reports say police moved in when the crowd began to get unruly.

Nineteen-year-old Jeremiah Fletcher, who was waiting in line, told The Blade newspaper that police fired pepper spray three to four times.
