"Police shut down an Adidas pop-up selling 99-cent Arizona Iced Tea sneakers after 2 teenagers were assaulted in massive crowds"

Business Insider:
People started showing up on Wednesday night, with some waiting in line for more than 12 hours in the hopes of getting a pair of the exclusive sneakers.

However, the pop-up — which was set to open at 11 a.m. in Soho on Thursday — never had the chance to sell a single pair of 99 cent sneakers before the New York Police Department shut down the event. Police arrived on the scene at 9 a.m. for crowd-control purposes.
