ORLANDO, Fla.— More than 100 law enforcement officers in riot gear broke up an out-of-control crowd waiting to buy a new basketball shoe timed to be released during the NBA All-Star Game in Orlando.

Authorities say there were no injuries or arrests late Thursday outside the Florida Mall. The crowd began getting unruly around 9:45 p.m. as hundreds of people packed the parking lot as they waited to purchase the $220, limited-edition Nike Foamposite One.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the crowd was asked to wait across the street when the mall closed at 9 p.m. But one person ran toward Foot Locker and the crowd followed.

Authorities formed a line and used shields to push back the crowd. Deputies on loudspeakers announced there would be no shoe release.
