Murphy said they smelled marijuana and found alcohol containers at the scene.The fights were reminiscent of violence that broke out in the early 1990s on streets across America as the shoes became popular targets for thieves.Neither Pelfrey nor Cullen were wearing a seat belt. A Raleigh woman who crashed into a man and killed him early Sunday morning may have had four times the legal limit for blood alcohol level content, according to police reports.Some people were mugged or even killed for early versions of the shoe, created by Nike Inc. In Tukwila, Murphy said the crowd was on the verge of a riot and would have gotten even more out of hand if the police hadn't intervened.State troopers said Kristin Pelfrey was a passenger in a van driven by 50-year-old Ricky Cullen.But she said she'll never do anything like it again.Shoppers stood in long lines through the night to get their hands on a retro version of one of the most popular models of Air Jordans ever made.Troopers said Cullen was driving where the road curves sharply to the left at a high speed. Troopers said Cullen drove off the road and onto the shoulder, then over-corrected to the left and rotated counter-clockwise.The frenzy over Air Jordans has been dangerous in the past.Carlisa Williams said she joined the crowd at the Southcenter for the experience and ended up buying two pairs of shoes -- one for her and one for her brother.The two were heading east on Sisco Road, just east of Burleigh Road at p.m.The Southcenter mall's stores sold out of the Air Jordan 11 Retro Concords, and all but about 50 people got their Nikes, Murphy said."I don't understand why they're so important to people," Williams told KING-TV. It's not worth risking your life over."
